On just about all Military Instillations they have Volunteer Income Tax Assistants (VITA) which are trained by the IRS. I did this for my last 3 years in the military and really enjoyed it. The service is FREE along with electronic filing and is overseen by the base Legal Office. The VITA people also have access lines to the IRS to help with problems.

The service is for all active duty, reserve, guard, dependents, and retired folks.
