Attention Yancey & Mitchell County beef producers if you are looking to expand or diversify your herd. Join us on November 15th at 6:00 pm at the Yancey senior center for a meal and discussion on Red Angus cattle. Raymond Prescott with the southeast Red Angus Association will be presenting.

Timber or landscape trees destroyed by recent fires, hurricanes or other storms are “casualty losses” that may allow the property owners to take a deduction on their federal income tax returns. To help timber owners, as well as home owners, who suffered timber or landscape tree damages with their tax reporting, this webinar will focus on the new tax law changes that Congress passed in 2017 that affect the casualty loss deductions starting in the 2018 tax year.
