Non-interest income increased by $2,000, or 5.9% to $36,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2013, compared to $34,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2012, primarily due to a gain on sale of $6,000 on available for sale securities offset by a decrease of $5,000 in fees and service charges.

Income tax expense decreased by $39,000 to $113,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2013 compared to $152,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012.  The decrease in income tax expense was due to $95,000 decrease in pre-tax income.
