FreeFile Program for Individual Income Tax
The State of Arkansas is a member of the Free File Alliance.
The Free File Alliance is a group of software providers working with the State of Arkansas and the IRS to donate free tax preparation for taxpayers.
What this means to Taxpayers is that if you meet the qualifying criteria, you can prepare and efile your tax return for FREE.
eFile Online Providers
The following companies provide preparation and electronic filing services for both Arkansas and Federal individual income taxes. The services these companies offer allow taxpayers to prepare their tax returns with their personal computer, giving them the option of filing their returns electronically or printing paper tax returns for mailing. These companies have asked the Department of Finance and Administration to provide links to their websites, and we have done so as an accommodation to our taxpayers.
The State of Arkansas does not specifically endorse or recommend any of these sites. It is your choice as to whether to employ the service of any of these companies. If you have any specific questions concerning the prices or services offered, contact the appropriate company listed below. All website links open in new windows.
