BEWARE OF SCAMS
With all the news out there about COVID-19 we must remember there are still other hazards in the world and we need to be careful not to get fooled by the scammers that are out there trying to take our hard-earned money.
While we must be safe while delivering the mail, we must also guard ourselves at home from people calling and pretending to be with the Social Security Administration or the IRS. A common ploy they use is telling you they need personal information from you so they can make sure your check from the government gets to you. The Social Security office will not call you, the IRS will not call you either. They both will contact you by mail for any information they may need.
In most cases, if your IRS refund is direct deposited any other money from the government will be put directly into your account too.
I hope you all stay safe and healthy during these trying times. We will get through this together and we will be better and stronger as a result of this.
On another note, your LM reports should have already been filed by March 30th and your 990 re-ports are due May 15th. Don’t forget to make sure your reports are done by this time.
