SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

As South Orange County residents start gearing up for tax season, Liberty Tax Service will open its newest location at 24655 La Plaza, Suite A in Dana Point to provide local residents with quality tax preparation. The company currently has offices in San Clemente and San Juan Capistrano.
Liberty Tax will be kicking off tax season with a grand opening roadside party on Jan. 7. Professionals and in-house Covered California enrollment counselors will be on-hand to provide free tax advice. The Dana Point Chamber of Commerce will welcome Liberty Tax with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Jan. 9. Liberty Tax staff will be collecting donations for “Cells Phones for Soldiers” both Jan. 7 and Jan. 9. Since 2004, the charity has provided more than 181 million minutes of free talk time to servicemen and women stationed around the world. Funds raised from the recycling of cellular phones are used to purchase prepaid international calling cards.
Liberty Tax Service offers free direct deposit for refunds sent to customers’ bank accounts as well as electronic filing, or e-file. Tax season hours are from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. For more information, call 949.388.8107.
