Milpitas Alliance for Better Child Care
By Meenu Gupta
If you are a licensed family childcare provider or interested in becoming one, this group is for you. The Milpitas Alliance for Better Child Care is a local group of family childcare providers dedicated to networking and communicating in support of each other, the children and families in their care. Meetings are held monthly on the second Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Milpitas Community Center or at a hosting family child care provider's home.
"The Milpitas Alliance for Better Child Care is an informal support group designed with the licensed family childcare provider in mind," said Toby Librande, City of Milpitas Childcare Coordinator. "The usual participants are women, who live in and around Milpitas, who have been licensed by Community Care Licensing to care for small or large groups of children in their homes. This group is not intended for parents, unless they are also licensed family child care providers."
The organization has their first meeting of 2009 on January 13. A tax primer for family childcare providers will be presented by Enrolled Agent (EA) James Houston. Houston has been a national trainer for many years teaching software, hardware, maintenance and diagnostics. He graduated from Santa Clara University School of Business, worked as a Senior Analyst for high-tech companies like Sun Microsystems and Quantum Corporation, started tax preparation in 2002 and became an Enrolled Agent in 2003. He is currently teaching IRS VITA, Small Business, Payroll Tax and Childcare workshops.
All of your questions related to paying the absolute minimum tax, avoiding an audit or arranging your expense receipts will be answered in this informative and interesting workshop designed for family childcare providers.
There is a requested RSVP for interested attendees. They need to call or email Librande at (408)-586-3077 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
