A workshop, hosted by Zonta Club of Santa Clarita Valley, will help participants understand the basics of filing taxes. Attendees will learn how incomes taxes are calculated, become aware of common errors and omissions that could cost money and obtain answers to income tax questions and the impact of tax law changes in 2018.
This free LifeForward workshop is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday January 19 at the Child and Family Center Education Building located at 21545 Centre Pointe Parkway, Santa Clarita, CA 91350.
Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) Laura and David Troost are CPA’s who provide services at Laura Troost LLC and have almost 40 years of combined experience. Together, they will share their expertise and knowledge with the audience. Both speakers are back by popular demand. Note that no child care will be available for this workshop.
Participants are not required to register in advance. Spanish translation can also be provided with prior request. The basics of income tax preparation shared by the SMEs will be very informative with valuable information to attendees because of changes in the tax laws for the year of 2018.
Previous workshops in the series have helped women and attendees learn how to improve relationships and communicate more effectively, increase feeling of self-worth, select career options and pursue meaningful employment, deal with anger management and stress, set budgets and manage money, maintain healthy eating and exercise habits, and advice before, during and 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. All are welcome to attend this event.
