North Adams Taxi Put on Probation
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
04:47AM / Wednesday, February 01, 2023
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council on Tuesday issued a stern warning and 30 days of probation to a local taxi company.    The vote came after nearly an hour of debate over suspending the license of OTT taxi.    "Again, I will reiterate, if you're back here again, it will be my recommendation, and I think my councilors will probably follow along at that point, because they'll feel like they've been slapped in the face," said President Lisa Blackmer. "So it won't be a three- or five-day suspension. It will be a 20 or 30 day."   OTT, or On Time Taxi, was before the council last week over complaints of unlicensed and underage

Can you reduce the Medicare surcharge?
Submitted by Edward Jones,
03:47PM / Tuesday, January 31, 2023
Before you turn 65, you'll want to become familiar with Medicare's rules and features. And if you're a high earner, you'll want to be especially aware of the Medicare premium surcharge — because, over time, it can add up to some significant dollars.   The premium surcharge — known as the income related monthly adjustment amount, or IRMAA — is assessed on premiums for Medicare Parts B and D, and generally is based on an individual's modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) of two years ago. So, the IRMAA for 2023 would be based on one's MAGI from 2021.   For someone who's married and files taxes jointly, and whose MAGI for 2021 was

Berkshire Health Group Sets Minimal Increase for Fiscal 2024
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
04:24PM / Monday, January 30, 2023
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — More than 30 municipal entities that are members of Berkshire Health Group will see health insurance rates rise by 1 percent in fiscal year 2024.   But the impact for many could be closer to a 9 percent hike depending on how they budgeted for health insurance costs in FY23.   The board of the joint purchasing group Monday morning approved the 1 percent hike for the year that begins on July 1. But, unlike last year, there was no vote on whether to offer members a one-month "premium holiday" in the coming fiscal year.   Last January, the board voted an 8 percent increase over FY22 but, at the same time, approved a one-month holiday —
