1. Call and make an appointment

Trained and certified volunteers will be preparing FREE returns, by appointment only, at the Goodwill Resource Center (GRC) for individuals making less than $54,000 annually. Tax preparers can help ensure that you claim necessary credits, such as Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, etc., so that you are maximizing your refund. If you would like to schedule an appointment at the GRC, please call the Central Arkansas Development Council (CADC) at (501) 320-1908.

3. File online

There is also a separate program to help some individuals file e-taxes for free! Taxpayers with income below $64,000 in 2016 can file for free online at IRS.gov/FreeFile or MyFreeTaxes.com.

Why pay for money that already belongs to you? When you file your taxes at these sites there are never any charges or fees. Plus, you can expect your entire refund in as few as 7 days.

These web-based, secure, free tax filing services provide easy to use systems designed to maximize your refund and tax credits.

WHAT YOU NEED TO FILE ONLINE:

1. To e-file your 2016 tax return or other electronic forms, you must verify your identity with your Self-Select PIN or Adjusted Gross Income from your 2015 tax return. If you don't have this information from your 2015 tax return, click here to get an electronic filing PIN.

2. Once you have your electronic filing PIN, you can file for free online at IRS.gov/FreeFile or MyFreeTaxes.com.

3. If you have any questions about your MyFreeTaxes return, certified tax coaches can help! Simply call (855) 698-9435, Monday-Friday, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Questions are answered in the order that they are received.
