Gov. Nathan Deal today announced that Calpis America Inc. has selected Peachtree City for its U.S. headquarters and first manufacturing operation. The company will invest $20 million and create 42 jobs in its first year of operations.
“As the No. 1 poultry-producing state in the nation, Georgia is the ideal place for Calpis to expand in the United States,” said Deal. “International firms such as Calpis find success here not only because Georgia is one of the top markets for its products, but because the state is a hub for fast, efficient outreach to other markets in North and South America. The company’s strategic decision to locate here moves us closer to becoming the best place in the nation in which to do business.”

Your not going to rouse the IRS nor pay more taxes than you actually owe. Why? Because its your money and you will be well armed with information that will advise you on the score on each home tax deduction and credit.
Recently, I can across an article in the National Association of Realtors (NAR) about the 10 most common errors that homeowners will make when filing their taxes. I hope that you will take a look at this article prior to filing your taxes this year!
