Disability Initiative Workgroup Members

Goodwill Industries works with adults with disabilities and also provides them with the locations of volunteer return preparation sites. The RM has made a new contact at Goodwill - the person over the stores where they train persons to work in the stores. She is very interested in working more closely with the IRS on these issues in the future. Currently they have 26 adults in their training program; they also offer financial literacy, and they have about 20 adults in their Wage Program. The TM will work with Goodwill on the Making Work Pay Credit, as well withholding requirements to prevent balance due returns.

Arkansas Workforce Center currently has programs where they provide job training and assistance to those with disabilities. They provide clients with locations of volunteer tax preparation sites. They will be co-located with another partner, Central Arkansas Development Council (CADC) and CADC will have a volunteer tax preparation site in the same building. The RM will also work with them on the Making Work Pay Credit. They are also very involved in the Coalition which has incorporated the DI into the existing EITC Coalition.

Mainstreaming Living continues to work and provide their clients with information on the volunteer tax preparation sites. Arkansas Rehabilitation continues to work with SPEC and also provide their clients with information on the volunteer tax preparation sites.
