A 2016 study by the Economic Policy Institute (EPI) found that as of 2013, almost half of American families had no retirement savings at all. Given those results, it's no surprise that a separate study from The Center for Retirement Research at Boston College found that over half of American households are at risk of failing to maintain their standard of living upon retirement.

The Marshall Police Department is strongly urging drivers to please use caution. There are several water leaks within the city, the main one being on Grand Ave. at Grove St. With temperatures below freezing, it’s highly likely these leaks will turn to ice making the roadways hazardous.

Tax Season Arrives In January

Are you ready for tax season? Ready or not, tax season, defined as the first day that the IRS accepts tax forms to the tax filing deadline, will be here soon.

For the 2018 filing season (covering the 2017 tax year), tax season begins on Monday, January 19 and ends on Tuesday, April 17. The traditional April 15th date is pushed back two days in 2018, because April 15 falls on a Sunday in 2018 and the following Monday is the Emancipation Day holiday in Washington, DC.
