Southern Bancorp CEO Op-Ed

Sunday, January 22, 2017

Darrin Williams' recent opinion piece in the Arkansas Gazette extols the virtue of the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) program for low-income families and advocates for the passage of the Working Families Opportunity Act, which would create a statewide EITC program to accompany the federal program. Southern Bancorp, like many CDBA members participates in the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program (VITA). Southern employees volunteer because they know that it supports their mission of creating economic opportunity for those who need it most.
