Improving the lives of low-income Arkansans by championing equal access to justice for all.
There are many ways to get involved. It's with your help that we can make a difference.
If you are a low income taxpayer, you are eligible to have your income tax return prepared for free at a Volunteer Income Tax Assistance site. There, IRS-certified volunteers will complete and e-file your federal and state income tax return. Some sites are walk-in and some require appointments. Also, some sites, designated as an AARP or TCE site, specialize in senior citizens. See the attached list of NWA sites for the upcoming filing season. Sites open in late January or early February.
Legal Aid of Arkansas welcomes two new staff attorneys, Trevor Hawkins and Sarah Barnett, to ring in the New Year. Access to legal representation is critical to quality of life, so every new addition to the Legal Aid team can be seen as a step toward improved communities and a better Arkansas.
