Program Requirements

Arkansas Asset Builders is a partner in the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. Our tax preparation services are provided by IRS-certified volunteers and are available to qualifying individuals and families with:

  • 2019 household income less than $56,000,
  • Taxpayers with disabilities, or
  • Limited-English speaking households.

Make an Appointment

Families with children will be given priority appointments during the month of February. We also accept walk-in clients as time and space allow. Drop-off service is not available at this time.

You can also call (501) 503-2123, email taxes@arkansasassetbuilders.org, or message us on Facebook to make an appointment or for more information.

Unique Tax situations

We serve ITIN holders as well as those who need to apply for or renew an ITIN. Tax assistance services are available in Spanish and English.

We also serve international students and scholars who receive scholarships, stipends, or job-training wages.

Certain complex tax situations are outside the scope of the VITA program. See the IRS website or our poster at the library for more info. For example, we cannot prepare tax returns with farm income, rental property, or self-employment involving inventory or claiming a home office deduction.
