Tax preparation assistance for 146th AW members
Taxes are coming due and if you have any last minute questions or just need some general financial advice there will be a personal financial consultant on base this weekend from 0800-1600 Saturday and Sunday. He will be in front of the Dining facility from 1030-1300 both days. If you would like to meet with him one on one please contact Julie Morency at Family Readiness so she can make sure he sets the time aside for you. Please insure it is okay with your command before you set up time to meet him.

New Customer Service hours
The entire wing is impacted by the various upcoming assessments and inspections. We will be having our Compliance Inspection, two Health Services Inspections, and a Logistics Compliance Assessment all taking place in May and then an Environmental, Safety, and Occupational Health Assessment in October.

To provide some dedicated time for our service organizations to prep for these inspections, beginning Tuesday, 17 January, we will transition to the following service/counter hours

Monday: Open 0800-1200 hrs
Tues-Fri: Open 0900-1500 hrs
UTAs: Open 0900-1500 hrs

Commanders and first sergeants have free access and will be able to determine when exceptions are necessary. Units may also identify someone who can assist with this determination. We all contribute to each others' success and this accommodation I know is appreciated by all affected areas.
