Tax-Related Identity Theft

An identity thief may use your Social Security number (SSN) to get a tax refund or a job. This is tax-related identity theft. You may not know it has happened until:

  • the IRS sends you a letter by mail saying they have gotten a suspicious tax return that uses your SSN, or
  • you try to e-file your return, but it's rejected as a duplicate because a return already has been filed using your SSN

If the IRS sends you a letter, follow the instructions in the letter.…

First-line treatments for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) often require many treatment sessions and delivery by extensively trained therapists. Now, research supported by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) has shown that a shorter therapy may be just as effective as lengthier first-line treatments. The study appeared in the March 2018 issue of JAMA Psychiatry.…

Hello All

It's been awhile since I gave a blog on driving habits. Well its Winter time and driving takes another complete way of driving as we all know. Right now as I type this blog I am looking out my back window and there is no snow in my backyard (WNY) and I am happy. I am not a skier so that is why I am glad there is no snow. But a big thing I worry about is when it does snow or if there is Black ice. We all know about Black ice, this is mainly on side roads and streets where you don't see the…

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the town,

the fire siren echoed blaring its sound.

The firefighters came running from far and from near,

and raced to the trucks quickly donning their gear.

jumped to the engine to see where the fire's at.

Down at the corner of Fifth and of Oak,

the dispatcher informed us of a house filled with smoke.

Smoke poured from the sides, from up and from down,

yet up on the…
