Entergy Arkansas Teams with Central Arkansas nonprofits for Super Tax Day

Entergy Arkansas customers will receive free tax preparation at Entergy’s Super Tax Day program held Saturdays in February.
At local Volunteer Income Tax Assistance sites, Central Arkansas Development Council, Arkansas Community Organization, Bank On Arkansas+, and Entergy volunteers help qualified residents claim federal Earned Income Tax Credits.
EITC is one of the nation’s most effective means of lifting needy Americans out of poverty. Throughout its service territory of Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas, Entergy has helped approximately 127,000 customers receive $224 million through the EITC program since 2011. In Arkansas alone, more than 28,000 people have received $44.8 million.
“Services provided through Super Tax Day and the VITA program help power lives for customers, who can gain long-term benefits by claiming EITC,” said John Bethel, director of public affairs for Entergy Arkansas. “As customers’ lives improve, communities benefit.”
Free tax preparation services are provided at VITA sites throughout the 2019 tax season. In some locations, local community partners are offering appointments for tax preparation services at local VITA sites throughout the tax-filing season, drop-off tax prep services, financial coaching, budget workshops, free legal services and more.
