Now is the time to teach your child about taxes

Halloween is the perfect time to teach your child about taxes. When they finish trick or treating, just grab a couple of handfuls of their candy. Tell them it's tax time - get used to it.

But really, if you have left over Halloween candy, many schools have a Candy Drive the day after the holiday. Students can bring candy to school and sometimes get a token in exchange (like a homework pass). The candy is donated to homeless shelters and other charities.

If you'd like to get the leftover candy out of your house, you can donate it at the office of Pediatric Dentist Thomas Hedrick or the lower school office of St. Mark's School on Preston Road.  [where: 75230]
