Business briefs for June 7, 2006

Hoping to encourage higher savings and more banking, the Internal Revenue Service announced that it will create a new program to allow taxpayers who use direct deposit to divide their refunds in up to three financial accounts.

The IRS will create a new form, Form 8888, which will give taxpayers greater control over their refunds. Form 8888 will give taxpayers a choice of selecting one, two or three accounts such as checking, savings and retirement account. Taxpayers who want all their refund deposited directly into one account can still use the appropriate line on the Form 1040 series.

New Mountain Driving School offered

Rendezvous Ranch in Oakley and Wasatch Adventure Consultants of Park City, have announced a partnership and the creation of the Mountain Driving School.

Featuring the Land Rover LR3, the school takes advantage of the roads and terrain of the 2000-acre Rendezvous Ranch located in Weber Canyon outside of Oakley.

The Mountain Driving School gives participants the opportunity to learn driving skills in a classroom setting and then immediately put those skills to the test on an exciting four-wheel drive course on the ranch property.

The school is offered as a corporate team building activity, with a post driving school workshop, or a private four-wheel driving education for locals and tourists looking for an exciting outdoor activity. Pricing for the school is determined by the number of participants, the number of vehicles and half or full day participation. Contact the Rendezvous Ranch or Wasatch Adventure Consultants for more information.

The Rendezvous Ranch is a 2000-acre family-owned working ranch. They provide year-round activities including fly-fishing, horseback riding, hiking, snowmobiling, hay-rides and sleigh rides. Their facilities are available for weddings, corporate events and family reunions.

Wasatch Adventure Consultants has been elevating business team performance through a custom blend of mountain adventures and indoor leadership workshops since 1999. They specialize in team building and management training, offering workshops, team building activities and guide services.
