Protecting Your Identity From Tax Time Scams

These are the important things to remember to protect yourself from scams all the year long, but especially at tax time:

• The IRS never calls you or sends you email. According to the IRS web site, you will never receive an email or telephone communication from them requesting personal information. The IRS does business the old fashioned way; though ...the mail. If you receive an email or phone call that seems to be from the IRS, don’t respond. For phone calls, hang up and call 1-800-829-1040 and ask about the call you received. You will find that it did not come from the IRS. If you receive an email claiming to be from the IRS, forward it to phishing@irs.gov. Then delete it.

• Know what’s required. The IRS never requires additional forms or information to be submitted for you to receive your refund from them. Normal tax return forms are sufficient and include all of the information that the IRS needs from you. You should not be asked to fill out additional forms before your refund is “released”.

• Beware of paper communications, too. No scams have been reported that are regular mail-based, however, you should always be aware of the dangers that are inherent to postal mail. Protect your identity by using safe mail handling practices. A few tax scams have been reported that ask you to fax information back. The IRS never does this.

• Know who you’re hiring. If you plan to hire someone to prepare your taxes, make sure you know who it is. Many online tax preparation companies spring up around tax time, some of them nothing more than a scam. Even real world tax preparation services can be criminals. Take the time to check out any tax preparation service before you give them access to your personal and financial information.

• Protect your computer. If you plan to file your taxes online, be sure you have current anti-virus, anti-spyware, and firewall protection installed. This applies even if you’re not filing your taxes online. Also be sure to password protect files before storing them on a hard drive or transmitting them electronically.

Tax time is stressful enough. Don’t let identity theft make it any more stressful than it has to be. Especially at this time of year, know how to protect yourself from identity theft, and what information to protect. When you get your refund check, you’ll be glad you did. (28)

Bryan Ohio Don't Crowd the Plow 

Watch Out For Blind Spots — The plow driver’s field of vision is limited. If you can’t see the plow’s side mirrors, the driver can’t see you. Stay two to three car lengths behind the plow.

Ice & Snow … Take it Slow — Snowplows travel well below the posted speed limit. Be patient. Try not to pass the plow. Watch for sudden stops or turns.

Beware of Snow Clouds — Snow plows often create clouds as they clear the roads. These Snow clouds can reduce your ability to see.

Fla. man wearing 'I have drugs' shirt busted for meth, pot A Florida man's crime was written all over his shirt

PASCO COUNTY, Fla. — A Florida man's crime was written all over his shirt.

The Pasco County Sheriff's Office says 50-year-old John Balmer was spotted at a Kmart in Hudson wearing a shirt that said "Who needs drugs? No, seriously, I have drugs," and as it turns out he really did have drugs.

 

When an officer walked in the store he watched as Balmer tried to hand off, then hide a small bag with a green leafy substance inside, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Inside the bag deputies say they found marijuana and methamphetamine.
