Mark Jason (Director), a California resident, was formerly a Special Agent for the Internal Revenue Service assigned to develop tax-evasion cases. He has also served as a budget analyst for the Chancellor of the California State University System. His education and diverse experience in accounting, economics, farm management and years living in Mexico have led him, most recently, to focus on this immigration project, while also working with Mexican locals near Puerto Vallarta to develop a 100 acre farm. This farm produces more than 300 tons of honeydew melons annually which are shipped to the United States. The Immigrant Tax Inquiry Group is a not-for-profit privately funded corporation.
