GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. Reference (a) announced the annual Marine Corps Income Tax Assistance Program. Tax Centers will open in January 2017 to begin filing Tax Year 2016 returns. The Tax Centers are required to use new IRS-approved software this filing season and therefore will be unable to electronically retrieve information from prior year tax returns prepared at a Tax Center. Military tax filers who do not already have copies of their prior year tax returns are encouraged to obtain transcripts from the IRS before visiting a Tax Center. Transcripts can be ordered at no cost from https:(slash slash)www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript.
2. Questions should be directed to the installation Legal Assistance Office. The HQMC POC for this matter is Ms. Mary Hostetter at the Judge Advocate Division, (703)692-7442 and via email at mary.hostetter(at)usmc.mil.
3. Release authorized by MajGen J. R. Ewers Jr., Staff Judge Advocate to the Commandant of the Marine Corps.//
