PCDC Holds Hearing on MMJ Zoning Regs

In the interest of full disclosure, let it be known that the author of this article is married to the Mayor.

If a tree falls in the forest, and there is no one there to hear it, does it make a noise? If a man makes a decision, and his wife is not there to correct him, is he still wrong?

by Joseph Lekarczyk

In the interest of full disclosure, let it be known that the author of this article is married to the Mayor.

Don’t be Scammed by Fake IRS Communications

IRS TAX TIP 2011-38

The IRS receives thousands of reports each year from taxpayers who receive suspicious emails, phone calls, faxes or notices claiming to be from the Internal Revenue Service.  Many of these scams fraudulently use the Internal Revenue Service name or logo as a lure to make the communication more authentic and enticing. The goal of these scams – known as phishing – is to trick you into revealing personal and financial information. The scammers can then use that information – like your Social Security number, bank account or credit card numbers – to commit identity theft or steal your money.
