 WRIGHT PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio – The Wright-Patterson Exchange is offering the military community a stress-free tax season by teaming with H&R Block to provide tax preparation services to military members and their families at a 10% discount.

In addition to the discount, H&R Block at the Exchange is offering:

  • A free second-look tax review program in which H&R Block reviews last year’s returns to determine whether filers are entitled to additional money that was not claimed.
  • 100% accuracy guarantee in the event of an audit.
  • In the event of an error, H&R Block will pay the penalty and interest at no additional cost to the filer.

“Filing a tax return can be an intimidating or overwhelming experience,” said Adam Shaw, Wright-Patterson Exchange general manager. “These well-trained professionals are all in to assist Wright Patterson Exchange shoppers with their tax preparation needs.”

The discount at the Wright-Patterson Exchange H&R Block location is available to all authorized Exchange shoppers, including honorably discharged veterans and Department of Defense and Coast Guard civilians.

Military shoppers can visit www.ShopMyExchange.com/hrblock to locate their local H&R Block Tax Pro office.

Wright Patterson shoppers can celebrate spring savings with MILITARY STAR.

From March 9 through March 23, Wright-Patterson Exchange shoppers who are approved for and use a new MILITARY STAR account will receive 15% off all purchases made on the first day instead of the regular 10% discount.

“The MILITARY STAR card comes with great benefits, including special savings opportunities like 15% off first-day purchases for new cardholders,” said Adam Shaw, Wright-Patterson Exchange general manager. “The card helps shoppers save while building credit at the same time.”

In addition to the 15% off first-day purchases, MILITARY STAR offers exclusive cardholder savings, such as:

  • Five cents off every gallon of gas at Exchange fuel locations.
  • 10% off at participating Exchange restaurants.
  • Free shipping on online orders.

Additionally, cardholders receive fair and flexible terms to help build credit, including one low APR for everyone, regardless of credit score, and no annual, late or over-limit fees. Active-duty military members are also eligible for additional benefits such as a 0%-interest military clothing plan for qualifying uniform basics and a reduced-interest deployment plan with no payments.

Shoppers also earn unlimited 2% rewards on all purchases at exchanges, commissaries and online (Rewards exclude Military Clothing line of credit.).

The 15% discount applies to purchases made everywhere the MILITARY STAR card is accepted, including all exchanges, commissaries and online at ShopMyExchange.com, myNavyExchange.com and ShopCGX.com. DoD civilians and retirees are eligible to apply for a card. All honorably discharged veterans who have confirmed their eligibility to shop at ShopMyExchange.com can use their MILITARY STAR card discount when shopping the Exchange online.
