The 2011 tax season is coming to an end and the Ramstein Tax Center wants to remind you to get your return sent in before it is too late. Although the IRS gives Americans living overseas an automatic two-month extension until June 15, if you owe on your return, interest begins accruing April 17. The Ramstein Tax Center is located in the Ramstein Legal Office, Bldg. 2137, across from the Southside Gym.  

• The Ramstein Tax Center in Bldg. 2137 will remain open through June 15.
• Through April 17, tax center hours are from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays; 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesdays; and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Fridays.
• From April 18 through June 15, tax center hours will be scaled back to 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesdays, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesdays, and 9 a.m. to noon Thursdays.
• People can access the website 24 hours a day from the convenience of their home computer to complete their taxes on their own. Customers can also bring documents into the tax center and a trained volunteer will help until the taxes are filed.
• Computers are available at the tax center to any active-duty member, Reservist or their dependents who want to file taxes, even if they don’t need assistance.
• Retirees and Department of Defense civilian employees can call the legal office at 480-5911 or 06371-47-5911/5912 for information about filing taxes.
• For military members, tax assistance is on a walk-in basis.
• If you have not filed 2010 taxes because you were either deployed or for some other reason, call the legal office at 480-5911 before coming in.
