Free Tax Help Available to Arlington and Grand Prairie Residents

Last year, an estimated $90 million in Earned Income Tax Credits (EITC) went unclaimed in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. In an effort to help make residents aware of this credit, the City of Arlington   and the AARP (Grand Prairie)  are offering free tax help to low and middle-income families.


Beginning Tuesday, January 21, tax preparers with the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program will be available to help Arlington residents complete their returns. On Monday, February 3, free help will be available to those in Grand Prairie.

Those seeking assistance should bring their W-2, 1099 or 1098, Social Security card or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) letter, and a picture ID.

For additional information, contact my Arlington district office by calling 817-459-2800.
