We have 3 MPLS circuits - Loc1, Loc2, and Loc3 all  connecting to our coporate office.  Loc1 and Loc2 do not have their own Internet circuit and I need them to able to use the Internet circuit in our corporate office without using a proxy.

What static routes should I have our MPLS provider add on their routers?  What static routes do I need to add on our routers?

Ok, so you have a typical Hub and spoke MPLS VPN, you should be runninng a routing protocol between the hub and spokes, are you? If not then you will at minumum need static routing.

If you need all routing other than the local traffic be sent to the hub (X.X.X.X) then you you could have him do the following;

route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 X.X.X.X

However, I would advise you to consult your MPLS provider and ask for the best solution. I do not know all your specifics/requirements, but I feel that you should configure a dynamic routing protocol. Local routes are not affected since they are preferred over the default.
