Congrats to Carolyn Harthoorn!

Today we are celebrating with Carolyn Harthoorn on her 20 years of service to Marion County Bank. 

After staying home with her kids for 10 years, Carolyn received a call from Marion County Bank offering a parttime teller position back in 1998.  She accepted and since that time, she has proven to be a jack-of-all-trades working on the teller line, proof area, loan reception and currently the operations department.  Her favorite part of the job is solving problems for clients and staff -- and we can assure you that she is great at it!  

Thank you, Carolyn, for your dedication to your job, the precision in your work, and the care that you show to clients and staff.  

Save for your First Home

A First-Time Homebuyer Savings Account (FTHSA) is a new type of savings account passed by the Iowa legislature to make purchasing a first home easier.  The law allows Iowans to make tax-deductible contributions into a First-Time Homebuyer Savings Account to be used for the purchase of a home.  Those who already own a home can open and contribute to an account for a designated first-time homebuyer and receive a tax deduction on Iowa state taxes too.
