    eventual full forgiveness in some circumstances.

    And if your taxes aren’t done, you’ll learn all about the Qualified Business Income deduction, in which business owners and many landlords will
    qualify to write off 20% of their revenue as a thank-you from Uncle Sam for employing people and/or capital.

    This part of the presenation will be given by Nate Zielonka of Zielonka Financial Managment.

    Nate Zielonka, Financial Advisor and IRS Enrolled Agent

    830-1490 Westminster St, Fitchburg, MA 01420, USA

    Our guest speaker for March is Mickie Lemay of Lead paint in your home or business is nothing to ignore, and lead poisoning can be a very serious health condition that affects your ability to do everything in your everyday life you do now. So be sure to take the time to have a lead paint consult eliminate those problems before they become hazardous to your health.

    M. Lemay Lead Paint Consulting was started with a determination to be sure that lead paint wouldn’t be a health hazard for as many homeowners in the Worcester County MA area. We know that a lot of our houses have history in our county, but that doesn’t mean we have to live with lead paint and the hazards that come along with it. So we decided to help out, one building at a time.

    Come out and join us for an open forum discussion and presentation to find out more about these issues that can effect older rental properties as we discuss steps, strategies, some of the challenges we face as property owners to bring these rentals up to healthy living standards for our residents and families.
