McMINNVILLE LOVE LOCKS, SET TO UNVEIL
McMinnville Love Locks will be unveiling our first art piece that is dedicated to place love locks (padlocks) on as an expression of your love to your companion, partner, pet or in memory of someone. We will be holding a Launch Party for McMinnville Love Locks on February 14, 2017, from 12 - 8pm in the Granary District parking lot. 

One of the ways that McMinnville Love Locks is giving to Grad night is by holding an annual fundraiser for MHS Grad Night so on Feb 14th we will be selling hot choc, coffee and Voodoo Donuts at the Launch Party. The second way that McMinnville Love Locks is giving to MHS Grad Night is by making some of the products with the help of MHS students to be sold by McMinnville Love Locks and a percentage of the sales is then given to each graduating class.

We hope you will join us and support McMinnville Love Locks supporting MHS Grad Night!

IRS Updates and News Releases:

Did you know? One of the best ways to get information is by visiting the IRS Small Business Tax Center where you can learn everything from how to get an Employer Identification Number (EIN) online to how to best navigate an audit.  

REMINDER: Employers Face New Jan. 31 W-2 Filing Deadline and 1099Misc with non-employee compensation in box 7 also is January 31 filing deadline;  Some Refunds Delayed Until Feb. 15.  The Internal Revenue Service reminds employers and small businesses of a new Jan. 31 filing deadline for Forms W-2. The IRS must also hold some refunds until Feb. 15. A new federal law, aimed at making it easier for the IRS to detect and prevent refund fraud, will accelerate the W-2 filing deadline for employers to Jan. 31. For similar reasons, the new law also requires the IRS to hold refunds involving two key refundable tax credits until at least Feb. 15.  LEARN MORE HERE!
