Where can seniors get help with the preparation of their income tax returns since the Escondido Seniors Center is closed?
We asked Teresa Collins, the city’s assistant communications director, for the answer.
She put us in touch with Jilaine Hernandez, who runs the Park Avenue Community Center: “We will be offering this service and it is expected to start on March 1st,” said Hernandez. “We have had a waiting list for the Senior Service Council Escondido, tax department, since January. At this point, their tax dates are full. You have now set up a control line (not a living person) where you must leave your name and telephone number. The customer will be called back if an appointment is available. The tax number is 442-777-3231. ”
