Starting Jan. 13, 2015 CG SUPRT will launch H&R Block tax services, where you may file your federal and state taxes online for free!
The IRS will begin accepting electronic tax returns (e-file) Jan. 20, 2015. If you complete your tax returns through CG SUPRT/H&R Block prior to the IRS opening date, your files will be held in a “pending” status. Once the IRS e-file system opens, H&R Block will automatically submit the return to the IRS.
This free tax service can only be initiated through the CG SUPRT website.
• Access the H&R Block tax software through the link provided on the CG SUPRT website.
• Wait until you receive all of your W-2s and other tax documents before you file your return. Otherwise, you may have to amend your tax returns.
• If you used the tax services last year, have your Adjusted Gross Income and Electronic Filing Pin from your 2013 tax return before you start your return. You can reset your pin at here.
• Each user can submit 1 federal and up to 3 state tax returns on the CG SUPRT/H&R Block free e-file system.
Eligible members include Coast Guard active duty members, civilian employees, members of the selected reserve, and their dependent family members.
If you have questions about this tax service or about your own tax returns, please call 1-855- CGSUPRT (247-8778) and ask to speak with a CG SUPRT tax consultant. Trained tax consultants will be available starting Jan. 13, 2015 by appointment, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. – 8 p.m., Eastern Standard Time.
