Welcome Eaton’s Income Tax Services to Downtown Libby
We are a 37-year-old income tax firm established by Bill Eaton in 1985, a retired Navy fighter pilot and businessman. He specialized in providing families and business owners quality tax preparation making sure to keep his clients compliant with the laws, while not paying any more than necessary. In 1992, he was joined by his son, Scott, working to grow the business until Bill’s retirement in 2010. Following Bill’s retirement, Scott was joined by Mark Dobrilovic and Katie Anderson who now rounded out the partnership. The business grew from tax returns to Business Consulting, Audit Representation, and Estate/Financial Planning.
Mark will be the partner in Libby. He is an Enrolled Agent and began preparing taxes in 1995 as both an Undergraduate and Graduate student at the University of Idaho where he met his wife (Kris) who has long term roots in North Idaho. Kris is a 5th generation Sandpoint native and logger’s daughter. She has worked directly for Eaton’s and now exclusively runs her own boutique payroll company. With their youngest son slated to attend the University of Montana in the Fall, this is the perfect opportunity for them to move back “home” to be close to their family.
The transition should be minimal as we already have taken on numerous Idaho and Montana clients. Mark always tries to make himself available to answer questions and is happy to talk tax, investments, estate, and financial planning. Feel free to give Lisa or Beverly a call at the Libby Office at (406) 293-8132 if you have any questions. Thank you, and we hope to develop a long-lasting relationship in the coming years.

Pink Bench Distilling in Troy to Begin Distribution This Summer
Submitted by Kristina Boyd
Pink Bench Distilling will begin distribution of its Montana-made craft spirits and open its tasting room doors this summer in Troy.
Owned by locals Shawna Kelsey and Kristina Boyd, the business is building programs to source ingredients through the community with the aim to bring economic development and conservation together in the lush and remote northwest region of the state.
A backyard fruit gleaning program will support efforts to reduce bear attractants within residential areas, and fruit will be used to craft apple, pear, and plum brandies. A forest products program will support work in the woods, with wild fruits and botanicals used to craft gins and liqueurs. And a specialty crop program will support small local farmers whose produce will also be used in the distillery’s gins and liqueurs.
In addition to these innovative programs, the business has teamed with The Center for Community Ownership and The Kassan Group to offer another community-oriented innovation: an opportunity for the public to directly invest in a Montana small business.
Any and all people are welcome to learn more about Pink Bench Distilling and its groundbreaking approach to business development at https://crowdfundmontana.com/campaigns/41t8oubg or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
