On Saturday, February 27th, the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, hosted by Coastline Community College and the IRS, had a successful day assisting Veterans and their spouses in filing IRS income tax returns in Newport Beach.
Several local BOE representatives also worked as volunteers in assisting individual taxpayers file their 2015 tax returns. This included Irvine Audit personnel Ryan Dagget, Brandon Travis and Mala Wadwa, and Irvine Compliance personnel Sheryl Johnson and John Vielma, along with two members from the Statewide BOE CAL VITA team out of El Segundo office, Valerie Barcarse and Sherlyn Blades.
The next veteran assistant event is scheduled for March 21, 2016.
