Andrew Ryback, president and chief executive officer of the bank, said, "For the past several years we have been looking for an opportunity to expand our banking services into Northern Nevada. We've built a brand that centers on customer service and providing financial solutions to our clients and we believe that this customer-focused approach will make us a competitive force in the region. Bringing our ' philosophy and practices to Northern Nevada is the next step in continuing the proud tradition of Plumas Bank and we believe expansion into this growing market will provide a host of benefits to our shareholders, clients and employees." B.J. North, a longtime Reno local who is executive vice president, retail banking manager for Plumas Bank, said, "The bank's philosophy is to deliver a high level of customer care along with a full complement of business and personal banking services. We are poised and prepared to serve the Northern Nevada community with enthusiasm. We are confident that Plumas Bank will be a perfect fit for the Reno business community." POLKA DOT OPiSNS FOR SEASON The Polka Dot has opened for the season. This. 54-year-old iconic East Quincy landmark has all your traditional fast food favorites on its expansive menu along With a few new items. This is the third year for owner Rae Lancaster, who has lived in Quincy for 22 years. JOY TAKES OVER THE OFFICE DUTIES Joy Strecker is the new office manager at Frank's Garage on Bresciani Lane in Quincy. Assuming those responsibilities will allow her husband and co-owner, Bryan, to spend his time in the shop alongside mechanic Dusty Miller doing what they do best servicing and repairing cars and trucks! The shop can be reached at 283-9293. ENJOY A FREE CUP OF SOUP ON KRISSY The Knook on Grover Alley in downtown Quincy is celebrating its second anniversary and doing it in a very "tasteful" way! To show their appreciation to their customers and the community, Krissy Bauer and her crew are giving away cups of soup beginning at 11 a.m. and continuing until it's gone Wednesday, March 11. No doubt this type of treat offering has something to do with why the business was named Quincy's Business of the Year for 2014. FAKE BILLING ALERT The administration at Seneca Healthcare District shared with us a fraudulent bill they received seeking immediate payment on a supposedly past-due balance that was being "referred to debt collections" if action wasn't taken immediately. A quick and cursory review might suggest to some that it appeared to be an authentic charge for yellow page advertising. You have to believe that if this fraudulent billing company is taking the time and effort to mail who knows how many of these bogus statements out to businesses some must be inadvertently getting paid. Even though it had a Bulgaria return address, one might mistakenly think it was just another American company outsourcing its work. But it does serve as a good reminder for us to never assume anything and to make sure our internal checks and balances are as they should be. Thanks, Seneca, for sharing this important information. PROTECT THAT PORTABILITY Recent estate tax regulations have eased planning, especially for most of us whose assets do not exceed the $5.34 million tax exemption. "Portability" permits the surviving spouse to add the unused portion of the exclusion from the deceased spouse to his or her estate tax exemption in the future, thus sheltering more from taxes. It is important to note that one must elect portability, even for smaller estates below the filing threshold and that the election must be made within nine months of the death (there can be a 6- month extension if necessary). Form 706 must be f'fled by the executor of estates valued at $5.34 million, but the executor of a smaller estate would be wise to file as well. For federal tax purposes, the IRS recognizes same-sex marriages that are valid where the marriage took place, regardless of where the couple lived at the time of one spouse's death. Estate-tax filing is complicated- surely not a do-it-yourself project.
