Please be aware that April 1, 2018 is the deadline
to receive tax information to have your return completed by Blizzard Business Service Inc. unless other
arrangements have been made. Every effort will be made to file by the tax deadline. If you
are a "snowbird" please contact the office to make arrangements for your return. If your income is primarily from
farming, you may be required to file by March 1st to avoid any penalties which means we must receive your
information by Feburary 20th. This does not apply if you only have farm rental income. Please
contact me if you are unsure of your filing requirements.

Section 179 has been made permanent and the bonus depreciation extended for 5 years. The Repairs and Capitalization
has been increased to $2,500 from $500.
