Since Escondido’s senior center is closed, where do seniors get assistance in preparing their income tax returns?
We reached out to Teresa Collins, the city’s deputy director of communications for the answer.
She put us in touch with Jilaine Hernandez who runs the Park Avenue Community Center: “We will be hosting this service and they are expected to start March 1,” said Hernandez. “Since January, we have been taking a waitlist for the Senior Service Council Escondido, tax section. At this time their tax appointments are full. They now have tax line set up (not a live person) where they have to leave their name and phone number. The customer will be called back when there is appointment availability. The tax line number is 442-777-3231.”
