Groups of­fer­ing tax help for free

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - OBITUARIES -

EL DO­RADO — El Do­rado Con­nec­tions and the Cen­tral Arkansas De­vel­op­ment Coun­cil are of­fer­ing free tax as­sis­tance for low-in­come res­i­dents.

El Do­rado Con­nec­tions Di­rec­tor Ju­lia Amis said vol­un­teers can help peo­ple to fill out in­come-tax forms and sub­mit them elec­tron­i­cally through IRS-ap­proved soft­ware.

An ap­point­ment can be sched­uled at (870) 639-3782. Dur­ing an ap­point­ment, a vis­i­tor meets with a vol­un­teer who is a cer­ti­fied ex­pert. The vol­un­teer then helps go through the tax forms.

To file taxes, a per­son will need a photo ID, So­cial Se­cu­rity card, W2 or other per­ti­nent forms and bank­ing in­for­ma­tion.

Amis said those who wish to item­ize their taxes will need to have that in­for­ma­tion as well.

Peo­ple are also en­cour­aged to take their pre­vi­ous tax re­turn if they have it.

Amis said ser­vices are of­fered on Tuesdays, Wed­nes­days and Thurs­days un­til April 11. Taxes are due to the IRS by April 17.
