If you have not filed your taxes yet this year, it may be time to check your calendar. The last day to file your taxes this year is April 18. Tax day is typically April 15 each year, but this year the filing deadline is extended until April 18 due to the District of Columbia Emancipation Day Holiday falling on April 16. In order to meet the IRS’s filing deadline, your taxes must be either postmarked or electronically filed on April 18 or earlier.

While the last few weeks of tax season typically fills up quickly as individuals rush to beat the deadline, the month of March is our slowest time of the season. The Tax Center currently has openings throughout the month of March. Scheduling an appointment now will help to guarantee that you bypass the end of season rush. Our April appointments are already filling up quickly. However, we can get you in as early as this week if you call today. Come in and let one of our IRS certified tax preparers help you complete your 2016 taxes.

The Tax Center is open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Thursdays from 1 to 7 p.m. We have also added 8 a.m. appointment slots on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday. Walk-ins are welcome, but are seen on a first come, first serve basis. If you think you may be filing a 1040EZ this year, ask about the new drop-off option. For the latest information regarding the tax center, please "like" the Fort Knox Office of the Staff Judge Advocate - OSJA page on Facebook.

Effective March 1, firearms registration will be available at the Visitors Center, located at the Chaffee (Main) Gate, from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., 7 days a week.

Drop off will still be available at DES Headquarters (Bldg. 298) at any time, but all resulting registrations will be picked up at the Visitors Control Center. Registrations will be ready for pick up in 7 calendar days. All registrations must be picked up by the requester or by an immediate family member.

Visitors must have original copies of their firearms registration when bringing the firearm on the installation. All firearms must be declared to the guard upon entering the installation, and there must be a valid reason/purpose for bringing a firearm on post - hunting or going to French Range for example. For more detailed information on all requirements, visit www.knox.army.mil.
