Staying Safe From Tax Season Scams
From the Desk of Lee Page – Vice President/Information Technology
Now that W-2’s are arriving, it’s time to consider how to stay safe from tax season scams. Every year, unfortunate taxpayers go to file their returns and are shocked to find that someone else has filed a fraudulent one in their name! Some innocent people also receive fraudulent phone calls from criminals impersonating tax officials. Sadly, tax fraud has only become more widespread and digital communication has opened new ways for it to happen.

Privacy Notice Notification
Your privacy is important to us.

Federal regulations require all Financial Institutions to notify consumers of their Privacy Policy.  This is to insure that companies do not share their customers personal (non-public) information with others without the customers knowledge.  Companies that intend to share information with third parties (for marketing or other product sales purposes) must give their customers the choice to "Opt-Out" of that sharing practice. The regulation also requires that all institutions follow a basic model format for their notice so that the information is clear and understandable to the consumer....

Attention College Students and Parents
Time to file your FAFSA
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (commonly known as the FAFSA) is a form that should be prepared annually by current and prospective college students (both undergraduate and graduate) to determine their eligibility for student financial aid.

Despite its name, the application is not for a single federal program, being rather the gateway of consideration for: the nine federal student-aid programs, the 605 state aid programs as well as most of the individual institutional aid available. Since many colleges distribute their own grant or scholarship money on a “first come, first served” basis, the earlier you complete the 2017 FAFSA application, the better.
