My fave homemade polvoron (Christmas gift idea)

I know it’s too early to post about Christmas gift ideas here, but hey Christmas is only a few weeks away. For someone who loves to eat like me I thought of posting my favorite homemade polvoron here as a perfect food gift idea (for me and my kids).

My last order from Marce Fedhz was two years ago. So this year I will make it a point to place my order even before Christmas season sets in. 🙂

The picture above was my order (in four plastic containers with cute thank you cards) that came with sample product the ones in small brown bags. They were delivered right at my doorsteps by Fedhz’ cousins who were living just a few blocks away.

Application for a federal tax id number

Sometimes we can get confused with the different references when it comes to the process of filing our taxes with the Internal Revenue Service or the IRS. These references such as “federal tax id number”, “Federal Employer id number (FEIN)”, or the “Employer id number (EIN)”, all refer to the same thing. It refers to the nine digit number that is issued by the US Internal Revenue Service to business entities for the purpose of identification.

This nine digit number is only used for tax administration. When the number is used for identification purposes, it is usually referred to as the Taxpayer id number or TIN and when it is used for the purpose of reporting taxes, it is usually referred to as Employer id number or EIN.

When do you need to apply for this nine digit number? You will need to apply for one if you are:

  • Starting a new business.
  • Intending to hire employees for your business. This also includes household employees.
  • Opening bank account that may require you to furnish an Employer Identification Number or the EIN.
  • Changing of ownership of your business, for example forming a partnership.
  • Creating a trust or representing an estate that operates a business after the owner’s death. A trust is where one party holds assets for the benefit of another party. A trust needs the trust tax id number to report its income, gains and losses, plus deductions under the federal law.

In order to avoid wasting precious time trying to navigate the IRS online site, many business owners will turn to a third party designee to assists them to obtain the Federal tax id number from the IRS on their behalf for a fee. There will be no charge if you choose to visit the IRS website yourself to complete the application.

The third party designee will process your application for your tax id number with the Internal Revenue Service or IRS and deliver it to you securely via email within 1 – 2 working days. If you need help in filling and completing of your application form, their customer service team will be there to assist you. But if you need any kind of legal advice concerning legal issues, it is advisable to contact an attorney or a law firm because third party designees are not law firms.

An Established Pub Environment

A pub or bar should be a location where guests can feel welcome when they walk through the door. They should be able to get a drink in a short time, listen to music, watch a sporting event on television, or get something to eat depending on the kind of pub that you own. As an owner, there are a few tips and ideas to keep in mind that can help you be a leading pub La Grange IL offers to customers.

Keep your bar as stocked as possible. This means that the bottles of alcohol that you serve need to remain full and fresh, never reusing the same bottles that you’ve been using in the past. You also need to keep any food supplies stocked each day. Pay attention to the condition of the foods that you sell as well as the dates. If it appears that your supplies are no longer in good condition, then you should throw them away and get new items to keep your customers from getting sick. Other items that you should keep stocked include napkins, straws, stirrers, glasses, and garnishes. If someone in your bar needs garnishes while they are working, then you need to be ready to cut what is needed so that no one has to wait.

Train your staff to properly measure alcohol when it’s poured. This will help to prevent overpouring, which can easily begin to eat into the profits that you could make. Develop a few drinks that will be your signature items on your menu. If you serve food from your pub, then try to develop a few signature dishes as well. The items that you sell should reflect the community where your pub is located with the prices being affordable for those who live in the area.
