Take Advantage of Tax Diversification
12:38PM / Wednesday, November 28, 2018

As an investor, you will have access to accounts that are taxed differently from one another. And it's possible you could benefit from tax diversification by owning accounts in these three categories:

Tax-deferred: Tax-deferred accounts include the traditional IRA and a 401(k) or similar employer-sponsored retirement plan. When you invest in tax-deferred vehicles, your money can grow faster than if it were placed in an account on which you paid taxes every year. You also may get a tax deduction for contributions you make today. When you start taking withdrawals from these tax-deferred accounts, typically during retirement, the money is usually taxed at your ordinary income tax

Choosing a Nurse Practitioner As Your Primary Care Provider
By Brenda Strysko, DNP, CNM, FNP-BC,
12:07PM / Wednesday, November 28, 2018

Nurse practitioners (NPs) are becoming a more common health partner for many Vermonters.  According to a 2018 report by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, Americans make more than 870 million visits to NPs every year.

Still, many patients are not aware that NPs can capably serve as a primary care provider. As clinicians that blend clinical skill in diagnosing and treating health conditions with consideration for disease prevention and health management, NPs provide comprehensive care to patients every day.

Vermont leads the way

Compared to other primary care providers, NPs are the most likely to practice in rural communities like Vermont. According to a 2011 survey from

North Adams Council Opts to Reduce Tax Burden on Business
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
01:08AM / Wednesday, November 28, 2018
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council on Tuesday rejected a proposal by Mayor Thomas Bernard to push more of the tax burden on local business.    After nearly 90 minutes of discussion, the council voted 8-1 to keep the property tax shift at 1.71. It took the council some time to struggle through amending the order submitted by the mayor's office.   The difference will mean the average residential tax bill will rise about $20 more than proposed but councilors felt it was an important action to support the city's many small businesses.    The original proposal by the mayor would have moved the shift back to 1.73 and set a tax rate of $42.10 per $1,000

It started as rain for most of us Monday night, and now it's snow for all of us Tuesday morning. And it's not going to stop anytime soon.

100 Cats for Christmas

For the sixth year, Berkshire Humane Society has received a grant from the Massachusetts Animal Coalition’s license plate program, which will support BHS’s 100 Cats for Christmas initiative during the month of December. 100 Cats for Christmas is the shelter’s largest and most successful low-cost spay/neuter effort for kittens and cats in the Berkshires and surrounding area.

In the last six years, 100 Cats for Christmas has exceeded its goal of spaying and neutering 100 cats. To participate, qualifying residents of Berkshire County must visit one

Clarksburg Raises Water District Rates
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
06:22PM / Monday, November 26, 2018
CLARKSBURG, Mass. — Homeowners in the Briggsville Water District will be seeing their annual bills more than double in just 18 months.   The Select Board, acting as the water commissioners, voted on Nov. 14 to increase the yearly rate by $120 effective Jan. 1, 2019.  The new rate beginning for 2019 will be $450. Bills are paid quarterly.   "It's something that I think is important," said Chairman Ronald Boucher. "What's in front of this board, what needs to be done for the Briggsville Water District, I think that raising the rate is appropriate."   The Select Board in July 2017 raised the rate from $200 to $300, and increased it again by
