The Management and Staff of National Tax Centers of Laurel, MS (formerly Econotax) would like to express its sincere gratitude to our customers for their continuous support for the last 25 years. Each tax season our company has donated to the Black Aids Institute in Los Angeles, CA to help promote HIV/AIDS Awareness. This year National Tax Centers decided to give their donations to two local charities in the am
ount of $10,000. The first donation in the amount of $5,000 was given to My Brother’s Keeper in Jackson, MS and $5,000 to the Do You Know HIV/AIDS Foundation in Laurel, MS.
National Tax Centers (formerly Econotax) was established and incorporated in 1984 by Ms. Pinky L. Jones of Laurel, MS a 1976 graduate of Mississippi Valley State University. Ms. Jones has 7 locations throughout southern Mississippi and Louisiana. Ms. Jones says her success comes from the help of dedicated employees and loyal clients but the backbone of her success comes from the help of her children Tory Allen, Vice President, Barnell “BJ” Jones who is the Chief Financial Officer and an active member of Jackson Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity I
nc., and Daphne Jones, Secretary.
National Tax Centers of Laurel partnered with the Jackson Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Incorporated to give
back to the community to help with the research, development, and education of our local communities about HIV/AIDS. Mr. Barnell Jones states “I am very elated that God has blessed me and my company to be able to give a generous donation to help educate our community on this very serious health issue that plagues our youth and community. We have to educate our people to protect themselves and by giving this donation we are hoping that we can help.” Once again, thanks to our loyal customers and employees of Laurel an
d all of our locations in the surrounding areas for your concern and help. You can visit us online at http://www.mynationaltaxcenters.com
