Ada McDonald's collecting nonperishable items to help stock Ada Food Pantry

One of the best parts of the end of the year is the changing of the seasons and the chance for families to spend time together during the holidays.

Unfortunately, for many families the holiday season, which is filled with lavish meals for many, is a stark reminder of how difficult it can be to provide even a modest meal for their family.

The Ada McDonald’s Restaurant, owned by Jerry Lewis, is hoping to make a difference this holiday season by holding a drive for the Ada Food Pantry.

The Ada Food Pantry helps provide families in need with a two to three day supply of food in addition to some hygiene items as well.

Adjustments to income tax withholding can impact payday, tax day

The passing of the 2012 federal tax filing extension deadline at midnight tonight means that now is a good time to start looking ahead to the 2013 tax filing season.  Many working taxpayers may benefit from a review of their federal income tax withholding rate, according to the Internal Revenue Service.

“It's not too late to adjust your 2012 tax withholding to avoid big tax refunds or tax bills when you file your tax return next year,” said Jennifer Jenkins, IRS spokesperson for Ohio.  “Act soon, though, to adjust your tax withholding to bring the taxes you pay throughout the year closer to what you actually owe.”
