Online payment options
For the best experience, please use an up to date operating system and the latest version of your screen reading software. We are aware of issues with these forms and are attempting to solve them but the issues involve a third party web service content creator/provider.
The forms have worked perfectly for some users and not so well for others. If you encounter difficulties, please use the phone option above. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience but this is the first time the Arkansas Council of the Blind has attempted an event virtually and had no idea these accessibility issues would occur.
