Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Vic­to­ria Vanier, Stanstead

throw away those ex­tra peren­ni­als you divide or dig up from your gar­dens this spring, the Colby-Curtis Mu­seum’s yearly plant sale is com­ing up on May 30th and it’s one of the mu­seum’s im­por­tant fundrais­ers. The ‘peren­nial’ dona­tions can be brought to the mu­seum on the Thurs­day and Fri­day be­fore the sale, where some­body will take them off your hands, and on the morn­ing of the sale be­fore 9:00 am, when the sale be­gins. All plants must be la­belled with va­ri­ety, height and colour. The sale is also a great op­por­tu­nity to get new plants for your peren­nial beds at bar­gain prices.

spring Lec­ture-Lun­cheon will also take place on May 30th, be­gin­ning at 10:20 am. The speaker is art his­to­rian Dr. Monique Nadeau Sau­mier whose topic will be a group of Canadian fe­male artists from the early 1900’s who of­ten came to the Eastern Town­ships on sketch­ing ex­pe­di­tions. Some of those now fa­mous artists in­clude Ma­bel May, Ma­bel Lockerby, Lil­ias Tor­rance New­ton and Emily Coo­nan. This should be a very popular lun­cheon so peo­ple in­ter­ested in at­tend­ing should re­serve by May 27th by call­ing the mu­seum at 819 876-7322. The stream­line process al­lows you to file three years of tax re­turns and 6 years of FBAR re­ports and avoid penal­ties. If you have re­ceived a de­mand from the IRS, it will be dif­fi­cult to cancel penal­ties. In or­der to file your US tax re­turns you must have a US So­cial Se­cu­rity Num­ber. Af­ter ap­ply­ing the for­eign tax credit for taxes paid in Canada you will sel­dom have taxes to pay to the US. Af­ter 42 years of pre­par­ing Canadian and Que­bec in­come tax re­turns, we are now pre­par­ing US tax re­turns and FBAR re­ports for dual cit­i­zen non-re­sid­ing in the US.
