The Word Around Town... Letters to our Editor
Stay Warm Project
The Pelham Good Neighbor Fund Committee and the St. Patrick Men’s Club are looking to help residents in Pelham stay warm during the 2010- 2011 winter season by winterizing their homes. The team would visit your home, place film over the windows to create a barrier to the cold weather, weather-strip and caulk around door frames and windows, and insulate electric outlets. They would also install a carbon monoxide detector as a safety measure. There must be a financial need in order to qualify. Please pick up your application at St. Patrick Church Rectory, Town Hall, Pelham Public Library, or off our Website at www.pe
lhamgoodneighborfund. org and return no later than Monday, November 15. If you qualify, you will be contacted no later than Monday, November 29. If you would like to volunteer your time for this worthy project, please call Dennis Hogan at 635-8087.

Brokenhearted As my husband and I happily walked into the
polls at Windham High School on November 2, I witnessed an incident that broke my heart. While we were walking toward the door through the standard gauntlet of candidates and their supporters, we passed an older man who was leaving. The man was turning around speaking angrily to one of the people holding a sign. The words coming out of his mouth were filled with venom and anger. He told the person who was the object of his assault to “learn to speak English.” When I walked by the man at whom the words had been spewed, I noted that he was of Hispanic decent. I was so horrified, all I could do was to say “I’m sorry” as I walked by him. I don’t know the names of the two men involved, or the exchange that had caused the outburst. But on the one day that means so much to our democracy, it made no sense. Do I really live in a town where this horror has taken hold? Really, Windham? Really?

Interest and Dividend Tax Rules
submitted by NH Department of Revenue Administration In response to questions that have been raised concerning the Department’s proposed Interest and Dividends Tax rules; specifically rule Rev. 902.07, the Department is issuing this statement:
In the Special Session of 2010, the Legislature amended
who is taxable under the Interest and Dividends Tax with the intention of returning the statute to the way it had been prior to changes made in the 2009 Legislative Session. That language appears below and is identical to the language in RSA 77:3, I(b) as it existed prior to the 2009 legislative changes. Taxation of Interest and Dividends; Who Taxable. Amend RSA 77:3, I(b) to read as follows: (b) Partnerships, limited liability companies, associations, and trusts, the beneficial interest in which is not represented by transferable shares, whose gross interest and dividend income from all sources exceeds $2,400 during the taxable year, but not including a qualified investment company as defined in RSA 77-A:1, XXI, or a trust comprising a part of an employee benefit plan, as defined in the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, section 3.
As can be seen from this statutory language, limited liability companies, which are not represented by transferable share(s), are again taxpayers under RSA Chapter 77. This is exactly as they had been under RSA Chapter 77 from 1993 through the 2009 Legislative Session. The proposed Rev 902.07 reflects the status quo prior to the 2009 Legislative Session. While Rev 902.07, as it existed prior to 2009, included the term “LLC” in some sections, it did not in others. To be consistent, it should have been included in other sections as well because the authorizing statute required it. The current proposed rules correct this clerical oversight, but do not expand or otherwise change the intent or application of the rules, as they existed before 2009. The Department’s proposed rules treat all taxpayers similarly under the Interest and Dividends tax statute and are fully consistent with the Department’s statutory authority. The proposed rules have been posted on the Department’s
Website for the past month and were the subject of a public hearing last week. To date, the Department has received no substantive criticism of the rules.

Home School- continued from front page
Home-schooled or non- public students may be permitted to use school district textbooks and/or library materials if sufficient copies are available, the material is appropriate to the student’s age and/or grade, and the materials are signed out to the student for a period equivalent to that which would be allowed of a regularly enrolled student. McCoy noted that members
of the Windham School Board will not award certificates or diplomas to any home-
educated or non-public schooled students. In order to earn such a certificate or diploma, students must enter the regular school program and complete all necessary graduation requirements in order to be eligible. It is expected that School Board members will take the time to fully review the proposed home-schooled policy and the issue will be brought up again at a future meeting.
