A tax season workshop is scheduled for the January LifeForward workshop hosted by Zonta Club of SCV. The free women’s workshop is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 21, at Savia Community Center, 23780 Newhall Ave. The workshop will help participants understand and file their taxes, and make them aware of allowable tax credits and requirements.
Presenters will be Laura and David Troost, Certified Public Accountants. Laura has been a specialist in income tax and accounting for individuals and small businesses for more than 16 years. David has over 15 years of experience assisting individuals and businesses with tax issues and currently is with the firm of BPE&H.
The workshop will help participants understand how income taxes are calculated and help them become aware of common errors and omissions that could cost them money. Participants also will be able to receive answers to their own income tax questions, learn what information an income tax professional needs, and learn how to select an income tax professional.
Free childcare is available through Single Mothers Outreach for women who register at least one week in advance at (661) 288-0117. Spanish translation also can be provided with advance request.
Previous workshops in the series have helped women select career options and pursue meaningful employment, work on goal setting and time management, deal with anger management, set budgets and file taxes, deal with drug and cyber bullying issues, and go after financial support after a divorce. Workshops are designed to help participants believe in their unlimited power and potential, build the skills necessary to succeed, and be the powerful women they are meant to be.
Zonta offers the free LifeForward workshops, usually on a monthly basis (although the series is dark during July and December), in collaboration with Single Mothers Outreach, Domestic Violence Center, Returning Women Veterans and Veterans’ Wives, and the Los Angeles County Department of Child & Family Services serving foster mothers. KHTS AM-1220 is a co-sponsor of the series with Zonta.
Workshops are organized by topics in which women express interest. A schedule of upcoming workshops is posted on www.scvzonta.org for women who are interested in a particular topic.
