We Want You - Come Join TVSC Board of Directors
On behalf of Twin Valley Seniors, as director, I am asking you to please consider joining the Board of Directors . The Board is a very important position to help support and keep the senior center strong to meet the needs of older and younger residents in your town. There is no special requirement to be on the board except caring and supporting the center plus, help guide the director to fulfill the center’s mission. The board meets the third Wednesday of each month from 4:00 to 5:00pm. Ideas and input for supporting and volunteering with fundraising events. Time is pretty minimal but the rewards are huge. We ask that residents in the Calais, Woodbury, East Montpelier, Adamant and Cabot areas have a voice for residents about the operation of your local senior center. If you have questions about the board position I welcome you to contact me at 223- 3322 or email email@example.com.

Charitable contributions and your Vermont taxes
A recent change in Vermont tax law (Act 11, enacted July 2, 2018), provides for a nonrefundable charitable contribution credit against the Vermont taxpayer's tax liability. This credit is 5 percent of the first $20,000 in eligible charitable contributions made during the taxable year. It applies whether the taxpayer itemizes deductions on their federal tax return or uses the standard deduction.
Since the law and credit are retroactive to January 1, 2018, taxpayers should keep any documentation of charitable contributions made in 2018, for use in preparing the 2018 tax return.
For example: If your 2018 charitable contributions total $1,000, the credit is $50 ($1,000 x 5% = $50). This credit reduces your taxes by $50, whether or not you itemize deductions.
