If you are interested in participating in the Trotter program, all you need to do is complete the Trotter mileage form located at the Fitness Center or the Community Office. Once you reach one or more mileage rewards, just turn in your sheet and continue to track your miles until you reach 10,000. Then, just start over again. Your reward can also be donated to Save-a-Pet, Fremont Food Pantry or American Heart Association.

Your Money

Are You Overpaying on income Tax?
Did you know that some or all of your Social Security may not be taxable? Calculations are made on adjusted gross income (AGI). See the table midway down the page at the link to determine if a portion of your Social Security income is tax-free.


Take Every Legal Deduction You Can
Tax avoidance is legal. Tax evasion is not and is subject to criminal penalties. According to Investopedia, “Tax avoidance is the use of legal methods to modify an individual's financial situation to lower the amount of income tax owed… by claiming the permissible deductions and credits.” View “Top Seven Senior Tax Breaks” at FindLaw, and double-check with your tax preparer to ensure you’re taking full advantage of deductions and credits to which you are entitled.
