South Central Chapter Members Answer Hundreds of Questions at WGAL Phone Bank
Several members from PICPA’s South Central Chapter answered 200 calls as part of WGAL-TV’s annual tax phone bank on Feb. 22, 2017. Brian Roche, WGAL’s anchor and consumer investigator, interviewed Eric MacCollum about delayed IRS refunds, Sheila Eichelberger about the Affordable Care Act and how it’s affecting filers this year, and Chris Humes on preventing ID theft and whether a driver’s license is required to file this year. The phones rang nonstop for 90 minutes with questions regarding Social Security and pension income, homeownership, gambling losses, and much more. The volunteers enjoyed giving back, as they always do each year, to this initiative.
