YPI hosted a tax preparation event at our Hollywood FamilySource Center that included family-friendly activities, a resource fair, and a big bus where volunteers and families completed returns.
This tax season, we have prepared a total of 485 free tax returns and helped our families collectively receive $429,302 in refunds. Thank you to our sponsors, Golden State Opportunity Foundation, CalEITC4Me, Citi, Bank of the West, Assemblymember Richard Bloom, Senator Kevin de Leon, and Assemblymember Miguel Santiago, for helping 76 low-income community members file their taxes that day. Joe Sanberg, entrepreneur, investor, and champion of the new state earned income tax credit, personally advocated for clients and shared in the festivities (pictured above, far right).
