(Victor Valley) – Board of Equalization Member George Runner today cut the ribbon at the new Rancho Cucamonga Taxpayer Service Center. Today marks the grand opening of the Center which provides tax assistance for about 30,000 Inland Empire businesses. The center opened its doors on December 7, 2015.
In addition to cutting the ribbon, Board Member Runner guided a tour of the new office facilities. He and local dignitaries welcomed guests and talked about how the center will be a great resource to San Bernardino County businesses.
“We want taxpayers to be aware of the free tax help available to them,” said Board Member Runner. “A thriving business community is essential to creating jobs and boosting the local economy.”
The 14,342 square-foot Taxpayer Service Center features four self-service kiosks that allow taxpayers to conveniently complete transactions and make payments. A state-of-the-art electronic queuing system significantly reduces wait times. The center offers free parking and convenient access to freeways (I-10, I-15, I-210, Highway 60) and public transportation (Metrolink and bus service).
The new center also offers basic sales and use tax classes and tax return preparation help for small business owners, entrepreneurs and nonprofit organizations. You can learn more and register for an event online or by calling 909-257-2900.
