NUMBER 45

Request for a courthouse employee union to be formed During the Feb. 19, 2014 meeting of the Boone County Supervisors, Teamsters Organizer Jon Thomas presented the Board with a petition the Teamsters had filed with the Public Employees Relations Board (PERB*) the previous day (Feb. 18), requesting a courthouse employee union be formed. Thomas commented that the employees were not complaining about wages or employee benefits, but the reason for the interest in organizing seemed to be a hostile working environment at the courthouse. The petition requests that an appropriate bargaining unit of employees be determined and that an election then be conducted to determine whether the bargaining unit will be represented for purposes of collective bargaining by the petitioning employee organization (employees of the Boone County Board of Supervisors.)

A public hearing on the petition has been scheduled for March 18, 2014 to determine the appropriate bargaining unit.

RIGHT: Wade Sundell had already fulfilled his dream of becoming a champion bronc rider, winning the calgary stampede championship twice. He just added another championship to his already stellar resume by winning the first ever RFD TV American rodeo at Dallas, TX. -Photos by Vickie Anderson

The unit would consist of approximately 25 employees: All regular full-time and regular part-time clerks and deputies employed in the offices of the Auditor, Treasurer, Recorder and Engineer; the Planning & Zoning Office; the County Attorney’s Office; all Assistant County Attorneys; and all maintenance/custodial staff assigned to the courthouse. As per Iowa Code Section 20.4, all elected officials are excluded. *PERB is an executive branch agency created by the Iowa General Assembly in 1974 to administer the Public Employment Relations Act, Iowa Code Chapter 20, which defines the collective bargaining rights and duties of public employers and public employees in Iowa. It is a neutral agency administered by a three-member Board.

Sundell wins big in the “Big D” V

ickie Anderson was not going to miss out on watching her nephew compete in what is heralded as the “largest, richest, $2 million, one day rodeo in the world,” even if it meant a 1,400 mile road trip over an extended weekend. As if sitting in a raucous AT&T Dallas Cowboys Stadium wasn’t excitement enough, Anderson witnessed an award-winning performance from the 29-year-old saddle bronc rider from Boxholm who outrode 14 others for the top prize

of $100,000. “His draw was perfect,” said Anderson. “He drew two amazing horses.” And the draw is important because in scoring, the horse’s movements account for half of the overall score. Sundell put up 90 points for the lead in his first ride on a horse named Lynx Mountain. The top four scorers came back for what is termed a “short-go”. When Sundell leaped from the back of Warrior Stampede after a wild and woolly 8-second ride he pumped his fist

in the air. He knew he had nailed the ride and the scoreboard only confirmed it, registering 92.5. Anderson said he was up against the best of the best. “A lot of cowboys even came out of retirement to try and win the big bucks.” Sunday, March 2, rodeo fans from around the country filled nearly half of the 80,000 capacity Dallas Cowboys Stadium for the first RFD TV “American” Rodeo. Invited to Dallas were the top 10 point earners following last November’s National Rodeo Finals in Las

Vegas, NV. To fill the remaining five spots in each event, participants had to qualify via other rodeos. Sundell not only finished the day $100,000 richer, he was presented with a Polaris Ranger sport utility vehicle and a shotgun. He also added another saddle and more belt buckles to his growing collection. Sundell says nothing compares to the feeling he gets when competing in rodeos. “Once you’re in the saddle and the horse starts bucking, you never know what’s going to happen.

It is truly an amazing feeling when you are able to conquer the animal, one that is unique to our sport.” Family members making the trip from Iowa were Vickie and her husband Tim, Sundell’s dad Doug and his cousin, Justin Shreve. They left Ogden on a Friday then met up Saturday at Sundell’s ranch in Coleman, OK, in the southern part of the state. Sunday morning the group headed out for Dallas. His sponsor Cary Veach and some close family friends also travelled to Texas to see him ride.

Library to get a new, updated look Visitors to the library will soon be noticing changes as renovations and updates are expected to begin soon. As per a recommendation of the library board, the Ogden City Council, at its March 4 meeting, held a public hearing and passed a resolution awarding a contract to

Boone Construction, Inc. for the library renovation project. According to City Manager Donovan Olson, Boone Construction’s base bid of $210,600 came in significantly lower than the estimate. “With the design help, the Library Board of Trustees has put

dan Wilson at one of the three generators housed at the ogden Municipal Utilities facility. Wilson oversaw the installation of a new 2,500 kw generator in 1972.

Wilson retires as OMU superintendent After this Friday, the three giant generators and other equipment at Ogden Municipal Utilities will no longer be Dan Wilson’s responsibility. As utilities superintendent Wilson has been been overseeing all the operations at Ogden’s water and electric plant since 1983, over 30 years. His last day is March 14. Working full-time, plus putting in a lot of extra hours at meetings and setting on the board of directors of the Purchase Power Group has left little free time for Wilson, who has now built up a big list of to-dos in retirement, like taking care of the home projects that have been deferred. And maybe he will get back to fishing, a sport he always has enjoyed. “And I’ll probably spend a lot

of time at the fire department,” said Wilson, a former fire chief. “I’ll probably hang out there, clean trucks and help the guys out. There is nothing worse than spending time at a fire then coming back and have five hours of cleanup.” Although Wilson stepped down as fire chief the end of last year, he still remains a member of the Ogden Volunteer Fire Department. Starting out as an apprentice Wilson calls himself a self-taught lineman. He was hired in November of 1974 as a power plant operator/ lineman, a job he worked for six years. Wilson was promoted to head DAN WILSON please turn to page two

HiS WEEK i EnjOyED the start of Daylight Savings Time. Spring doesn’t officially begin until March 20 but to me the extra hour of daylight is huge. Not only does it really seem like spring now, but it also means summer is rapidly approaching also. My favorite time of the year! Of course, the real sign that springtime has arrived is that it is Spring Break. Conditions are good up on the mountain for skiers after last week’s storms that brought nearly 10 inches of new snow and lots of out of state visitors are enjoying their spring break on the slopes. I’m enjoying spring break this year also, with a group of Southern Methodist University students from Texas. They did not come to Taos to ski, but to do volunteer work. Ten students are spending time helping out at the local animal shelter in the mornings and then spending their afternoons here at the horse sanctuary. It’s great to have all that youthful energy to assist with some painting projects and fence work. The horses are enjoying extra attention also, as the students learn about horse care. With the temps in the upper 50s and low 60s over the weekend, I tackled some yard work and worked on my chicken fencing. I’d read somewhere about how beneficial it is to let chickens forage in flower beds and gardens. They root around, pecking in the dirt, eating bugs, and this supposedly is good for helping aerate the soil and dropping good fertilizer at the same time. I let my rooster and two hens have the run of the yard the past week and now I’m working on keeping them contained again in their pen. They did root around a lot. They very enthusiastically scattered the mulch right out of the flower beds, tore up the new tulips that have come up, and dropped their “fertilizer” all over my walk ways. The little slobs made a mess everywhere they went. And they were so busy tearing up the place they seemed to forget that they were supposed to keep laying eggs every day. So that’s the end of their yard privileges. We’ve had several days that have been incredibly nice – warm, sunny, no wind – just plain delightful. I know that there’s still many potential bad weather days in the next couple of months, and the early good weather makes those bad days harder to take. Typically we get a good snow or two in late March and even up till the end of April. This winter, though, has been warmer and dryer than normal so there’s a good chance that the mild temps will continue. I could get used to this. Actually, I am used to this! We desperately need snow and rain, however. This will be a dangerous year for fires in New Mexico if we don’t get something in the way of normal moisture in the coming weeks. Our baby horse, Hope, turned one year old this week. She came to the sanctuary last March when she was just a week old. She had been left an orphan after her mother got out on the highway and was hit by a car and killed. Without her mother to protect her, Hope was then attacked by dogs and she was nearly killed. When she was brought to the sanctuary, she was in pitiful shape. She could barely stand. Her whole body was covered with bite marks, deep puncture wounds from the dog bites, and the insides of her hind legs were ripped open. She has some scars as a result, but has made a remarkable recovery. I was going through my photos from last year, putting together a slide show for a presentation that I did for a local college class. I picked out a few photos of little Hope, from the day she arrived, then when she was a few months old, and from last fall when she was almost completely healed of her injuries. One of my favorite pictures is one that was taken when we had a group of seniors from the retirement home visiting. Hope was right there in the middle of the visit, standing calmly beside a wheelchair for an elderly lady to pet her. She is growing up to be a beautiful, sweet little horse. One of these days I’m sure she’ll be a great therapy horse. From a very difficult start in life, she has thrived and now is a playful, happy youngster. Ray Hunt, one of the greatest horse trainers of all time, once said “I try to face life for what it is. There’s heartache, but it’s a good thing.” That quote always seemed appropriate to me when dealing with rescue horses and the harsh experiences that many of them have been through. Watching little Hope grow up, healthy and happy and full of youthful joy reminds me of this quote. Spring is a time of fresh beginnings, growth and new life. It’s so nice to have an extra hour of daylight every day now to appreciate it even more! Until next time, Ruth B.

Dan Wilson, Continued from page one. lineman in 1981, then two years later became superintendent. Wilson recalls that when he first started with OMU they operated the sewer utility as well. The City of Ogden later took over operation of the sewer system. Electronics and computers, Wilson will tell, have resulted in a dramatic increase in electric loads over the years. “The load at the new Ogden Middle School is about four times that of the former junior high and high school buildings.” What else has taken place in Wilson’s almost 40 years at the Utilities office? The first basket truck purchased shortly after Wilson’s arrival decreased the need for climbing poles. They installed a new switch gear lineup in 2000. Completion of a voltage conversion project without the aid of outside contractors is something OMU employees prided themselves on. They began replacing water valves in the 1980s and have replaced all the original fire hydrants. Line foreman Brandon Craighton has been appointed as Wilson’s replacement.

The church of Christ Who are these people? As we read in the Bible we only read about the presence of God in the area of the Old and New Testaments (Middle East, Greece, Rome, etc). Where was God for the rest of the world (China, North America, Island Nations, etc.)? Why didn’t He appear to them? Just because we do not have a record of God’s appearing in other areas of the world doesn’t mean that He didn’t do that. In the times of the Old Testament, God made a special covenant with the people of Israel that He didn’t make with the other nations (Exodus 19:5-6; Deuteronomy 7:6, 14:2), so God dealt specially with the children of Israel in ways that He didn’t deal with the rest of the nations. God did send prophets to some Gentile nations as illustrated in the book of Jonah. In the New Testament, Jesus told the apostles in Matthew 28:18-20 and Mark 16:15-16 to preach the gospel to all the world. This was about 30 A.D. Paul says in Colossians 1:23 that the gospel was preached to every creature under heaven. This was around 60 A.D. So every person who lived in the world in that day heard God’s message at that time. There is no doubt that the Lord aided them in their efforts to accomplish this task. Sometimes He even transported them miraculously to new places (Acts 8:39). The bottom line is that the Bible teaches that God is present everywhere (Psalm 24:1) and that He doesn’t necessarily tell everything that He does to all men (Psalm 50:12). There are some things that are hidden from man’s knowledge (Deuteronomy 29:29, Romans 11:33). We must be concerned with the things that God reveals to us today in His word. We can be assured that God is a just, holy, and merciful God and that His judgment will be fair in that regard (Psalm 89:14). Remember, God is present with us right now, watching and waiting, to see how we will respond to His gospel message - the good news of Jesus death, burial and resurrection (Acts 2: 37-47).

Zion LWML meets for March devotions Members of Zion Lutheran Women’s Missionary League met Thursday, March 6 in the fellowship hall with hostesses Lillie Longhenry and Maxine Lingren. Lois Powers led devotions on “Foot Washers.” Jesus used examples of humility and love by kneeling and washing others’ feet as a sign of humility of a servant and love for others the night before He was betrayed. Everyone needs to love others because He first loved us. “The Man is Ever Blessed” was sung accompanied by pianist Annette Powers. Pastor Brandt led the Bible study “Forgiveness: Received and Given.” People repeat the simple act of breathing in-and-out over 17,000 times a day and without it we’d quickly die. It’s a rhythm of life itself. The church also has a rhythm, a back-and-forth that is as much a part of her life, as breathing is to your life. The Christian life is all about forgiveness, received and forgiven. This is how the church lives: it is the back and forth cadence that literally inspires life in this world. You cannot breathe out unless you have breathed in (try that sometime!). President Dorothy Kruse led the business meeting with reports from secretary Joyce Boehm and treasurer Eileen Westrum. In mission services Ellie Menz

from Jefferson sent thanks for the Haiti Mission offering from the February prayer service. Carol Claussen reported 17 quilts were tied in February. Next tie date is March 17 with quilts to be shipped in April. Members served a pancake supper prior to the first Lenten service on Ash Wednesday.

Henry Haglund is Ogden High’s March Student of the Month We are honored to announce that Henry Haglund has been chosen as March Student of the Month. He is involved in so much it is really difficult to showcase what he excels at the most. His involvement in co-curricular activities is matched by few. Henry has been a letter winner for three years in football and was honored the last two years as an All-District player. This past season he was named to the First Team All-State as a defensive player. He also is a four-year letter winner in wrestling. As a freshman, Henry won eight matches. This year he competed in the State Wrestling tournament at 160 lbs. Henry has been selected as an All-State vocalist during the 2010, 2012 and 2013 school years, as well as being a lead member of the cast of Into the Woods and Grease. Henry has participated in chorus all four years at Ogden High School. He has sung the National Anthem at numerous events the last two years, including the first round of Football Playoffs hosted by Ogden this school year and at all home wrestling com-

HENRY HAGLUND Student of the Month petitions. Henry’s musical talents go beyond activities here at Ogden High School. He sang the National Anthem at the Opening Round of the State Wrestling Tournament in

2013 and this year at the Medaling Round on Saturday morning. It was really special this year, as Henry was also participating in the State Wrestling Tournament. He has been the Anthem singer at the Iowa State Fair Draft Horse Show, the Nebraska State Fair Draft Horse Show, the Scott County Fair Draft Horse Show in Jordan, Minnesota, and the Britt Iowa Draft Horse Show. In June of 2013 Henry accompanied the Chorale Midwest European Tour. He sang in Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales. Henry has other interests as well as singing. He raises, breaks and trains Belgian draft horses on the family farm. He and his family travel in Iowa, Nebraska and Minnesota participating in shows. Henry was the top Senior Horseman at the Iowa State Fair in 2011 and 2013. Henry has a younger brother Harry, a sophomore at Ogden High School, two older sisters, Leslie and Melissa, and an older brother, Nick. His parents are Karl and Susan Haglund.

Library, -continued from page one. lower than expected and that will allow the Library Board to consider other improvements they didn’t think they could afford.” The library board, led by Rick Gustafson, has been working with Haila Engineering and Architecture on the new design. The project contains many components, including installation of a window to provide more light as well as repair and cleaning of the stone exterior; replacing ceiling tiles and upgrading the interior lighting; replacing portions of the floor covering and cleaning the carpet; installing a new kitchenette in the meeting room, replacing doors and painting trim; renovating the bathrooms and painting the entire interior of the building. “One unique feature of the project,” Olson said, “is that the plan is to keep the high-quality, original elements of the building like book shelves, door hardware, carpet, etc. and make improvements that complement those great elements.”

Coach says decision to leave was a tough one Ogden football coach Garrison Carter always told his players he believed in being honest and up front with what is going on in the program. That is why he called a team meeting Monday, March 3. It was important for him to tell his players first of his decision to take another coaching position. “Leaving Ogden was the toughest decision I’ve made in my life,” said Carter. “When I first came to Ogden I began preaching to our players to set extremely high goals and to never be afraid to reach them. My goal is to coach at the highest level I possibly can. Therefore I would be a hypocrite if I did not take on this opportunity. I would not have left Ogden for just any job.” An offer from Washington, a Class 3A school that finished second in the state of Iowa last year, was an opportunity he felt he could not pass up. Leaving the players will be difficult for the Bulldog coach. “I spend so much time with these guys,” he said. GARRISON CARTER “The thing that people outside of the Former Bulldog Coach program will never truly understand is how little of coaching is actually about the Xs and Os. To me, coaching is about taking an interest in these kids’ lives, getting to know them, and then finding a way to push them to limits they never believed they could reach.” Carter described his two years in Ogden as an amazing experience. “I was surrounded by a coaching staff, administration and players that fully bought into a vision of what Ogden football is supposed to be.” He credits the many new relationships formed in his two years here in helping him develop both as a person and as a coach. Carter walks away from a football program he believes is set up to succeed. He explained: “The person that takes over this program next fall will be taking over a tremendous situation. Ogden’s facilities, administration, assistant coaches and student-athletes are second to none at this level.” As far as on the field, Ogden returns eight all-district performers from last season, along with a first-team all-state selection. Under Coach Carter the Bulldogs attained a 16-7 record; reached the second round of the playoffs in 2012 and the quarterfinals in 2013; had five wins over ranked teams and had five players named to all-state teams. Ogden High School will not only be replacing a football coach, but a girls track coach as well, another duty Carter took on while here.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING A public hearing will be held at 9:00 AM on Wednesday, March 26, 2014, at USDA Service Center, 1602 Snedden Drive, Boone, Iowa, on the question of the adoption of proposed amended soil loss limit regulations for the lands in the Boone County Soil and Water Conservation District.

The rates of erosion expressed in tons per acre per year are proposed to be set for (1) agricultural lands, (2) nonagricultural lands, and (3) construction sites. For agricultural (farm) land, the proposed soil loss limit will be set for each soil type and will vary from one to five tons per acre per year. The proposed amended soil loss limit regulations are on file and may be reviewed at the Boone County Soil and Water Conservation District office, 1602 Snedden Drive, Boone, Iowa, prior to the date of the hearing. If special accommodations are needed, please contact the Boone SWCD one week prior to the hearing by calling (515) 432-2316, Ext. 3.

BOONE COUNTY SUPERVISORS PROCEEDINGS February 26, 2014 Duffy called meeting to order at 8:30 a.m. with all members present. Foster moved Hollingshead seconded motion to approve February 19, 2014 meeting minutes. No: None; Yes: Duffy, Foster and Hollingshead. Motion passed. Hollingshead moved Foster seconded motion to approve the agenda as posted noting that it isn’t necessary for Board of Supervisors to consider “CICS Pooled Funds Agreement” as county is part of original counties for this mental health region. No: None; Yes: Duffy, Foster and Hollingshead. Motion passed. Representatives from the Boone County Veterans Administration Commission met with the Board to discuss fulltime status for VA director, Kevin Brown. It was agreed to allow him to go full time until June 30, 2014. Foster moved Hollingshead seconded motion to approve Boone County Resolution 2014-09 authorizing the Boone County Sheriff’s office to withdraw from the Central Iowa Task Force as follows. No: None; Yes: Duffy, Foster and Hollingshead. Motion passed. RESOLUTION NO. 2014-09 Whereas, the Boone County Sheriff’s Office has a concerning manpower shortage. The office has six road deputies, one detective, two Sergeants, the Chief Deputy, and the Sheriff making the full time law enforcement staff at eleven. With this the road coverage is limited to one deputy during the day shift and one deputy from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. shift and one deputy from 3:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. shift. Whereas, the Chief Deputy and Sheriff do currently assist with the day shift at times and a sergeant assists with the nighttime shifts but with work schedules this is not consistent. Whereas, the Boone Sheriff’s Office currently devotes one full time Sergeant to the Central Iowa Drug Task Force. Whereas, the Boone Sheriff’s Office pays between $1,400 to $1,900 quarterly to belong fulltime to the Central Iowa Drug Task Force. This translates to a yearly cost of membership to $5,600 to $7,600 for

membership. Whereas, on January 22, 2014 the Boone County Board of Supervisors advised of lower county revenue and asked all departments to cut costs. Whereas, with the costs of a full time Sergeant with the costs of the quarterly membership payments, the Sheriff’s Office cannot afford the loss of manpower or expenses related to full time membership in the Central Iowa Drug Task Force. Whereas, by freeing up the Sergeant position the Sheriff’s Office can utilize the Sergeant in road coverage, investigation and drug interdiction guidance. The Sheriff’s Office can use both Sergeants to become more proactive in vehicle stops involving alcohol and drugs and allowing road deputies to expand their drug investigations under the guidance of the Sergeants with drug investigation experience. Now, therefore, it is: Resolved that the Board of Boone County Supervisors finds that the Boone County Sheriff’s Office shall cease membership in the Central Iowa Drug Task Force. Hollingshead moved Foster seconded motion to accept Letter of Resignation of Dr. John Cook as Boone County Medical Examiner on April 30, 2014. No: None; Yes: Duffy, Foster and Hollingshead. Motion passed. Hollingshead moved Foster seconded motion to approve farm lease for 8.27 acres described as Lot A of Government Lot 2, SW1/4 of NW1/4 Section 4-84-26 to Michael Martin. No: None; Yes: Duffy, Foster and Hollingshead. Motion passed. Hollingshead moved Foster seconded motion to table Boone County Resolution 2014-10 officially vacating the Y-Camp Road April 1, 2014. No: None; Yes: Duffy, Foster and Hollingshead. Motion passed. David Frost, Sanitarian, Code Enforcement, and Buildings & Grounds Supervisor, met with the board for department update. Foster moved Hollingshead seconded motion to set March 19, 2014, at 10:30 a.m., in the Board room of the Boone

County Courthouse, 201 State St., as the date, time and place to conduct a public hearing on Resolution of Necessity and final plans after which bids for project will be opened. No: None; Yes: Duffy, Foster and Hollingshead. Motion passed.

Will be offering more food safety training Iowa State University is anticipating an increase in demand for its food safety training course as new state regulations take effect in Iowa this year. New Iowa Department of Inspection and Appeals guidelines went into effect Jan. 1 requiring food establishments to designate a Certified Food Protection Manager to oversee the safe handling, preparation and service of food items. To meet the expected demand, specialists with Human Sciences Extension and Outreach will offer more than 100 ServSafe courses across the state. ServSafe trains employees in food sanitation and instructs them on how to prevent foodborne illnesses. Barbara Fuller, a nutrition and health program specialist who works in Red Oak and serves southwest Iowa, co-coordinates the program for extension and outreach. She said she has seen an increase in interest in the courses since the new guidelines were announced. “Already the new licensees are calling,” Fuller said. “They have been told that this is a new requirement when they apply. Others are also starting to send more people to classes.” Catherine Strohbehn, an extension specialist overseeing Iowa State’s retail food safety programs, anticipates that more than 1,000 Iowans will take the course.

Many families fail to claim higher education tax benefits The Iowa College Student Aid Commission (Iowa College Aid) would like to remind Iowa families paying college costs or repaying federal student loans to take advantage of federal higher education tax benefits to reduce their tax obligations. Eligible students and families can save thousands of dollars by taking advantage of tax credits, which reduce federal income taxes owed and deductions, which reduce a taxpayer’s taxable income. However, according to the U.S. Government Accountability Office, about 14 percent, of tax filers (1.5 million out of 11 million eligible returns) fail to claim a credit or deduction for which they appear were eligible. “The most recent analysis found that tax filers left behind approximately $726 million worth of higher education tax benefits in 2009, an average of $466 per person,” stated Karen Misjak, executive director of Iowa College Aid. “We want to make sure that Iowans are aware of the money-saving tax benefits for students and families who paid college expenses last year. Iowa College Aid encourages all Iowa families who incurred higher education expenses during 2013 to explore the tax credits and deductions available.” Available higher education tax benefits for the 2013 tax year include: • American Opportunity Tax Credit. This credit is available to a

broad range of taxpayers, including many with higher incomes and those who owe no tax. Many of those eligible qualify for the maximum annual credit of $2,500 per student for out-of-pocket educational expenses including tuition, fees and required course material while enrolled in a program leading to a degree, certificate or other recognized educational credential. Up to 40%, or $1,000 of the credit is refundable if the credit is more than the amount of taxes owed. This credit, which reduces the amount of income tax owed, can be claimed based on the same student’s expenses for no more than four tax years. • Lifetime Learning Credit. This credit allows taxpayers to reduce their federal income tax by up to $2,000 for qualified education expenses paid for all students enrolled in eligible educational institutions. Unlike the American Opportunity Tax Credit, the Lifetime Learning Credit is not refundable. This means that it can reduce a filer’s tax to zero, but if the credit is more than taxes owed, the excess will not be refunded. This credit can be used annually for all years of postsecondary education and for courses to acquire or improve job skills. Taxpayers cannot claim both a Lifetime Learning Credit and an American Opportunity Credit for the same student in the same year.

• Student Loan Interest Deduction. This deduction enables eligible student loan borrowers to reduce their taxable income, up to a maximum of $2,500, based on the amount of student loan interest paid during the tax year. Student loan interest is interest that was paid during the year on a qualified student loan. It includes both required and voluntary interest payments. • Tuition and Fees Deduction. Tax payers can reduce the amount of their income subject to tax by up to $4,000 for qualified educational expenses paid in 2013 including tuition, fees and amounts required to be paid to the educational institution for course-related books, supplies and equipment. For more information on moneysaving tax benefits available to taxpayers that may help reduce overall cost of a college education, Iowa College Aid also provides a Higher Education Tax Benefits fact sheet. Families can also reference the IRS Publication 970, Tax Benefits for Education. Iowa College Aid recommends students and families consult with a professional tax advisor or the IRS to determine eligibility for the tax benefits. In addition, more information about Iowa College Aid and its products and services that help Iowa families plan, prepare and pay for college can be found at www. IowaCollegeAid.gov.
