Tax scams that use email, phone calls, texts or contact through social media that seem to come from the IRS are common these days. These scams often use the IRS name and logo or fake websites that look real.
These scammers want you to give them your personal and financial information. The crooks then use this information to steal your identity or your money.
Remember that the IRS will not contact you to ask for personal information by phone or email.

You should have received a notice from the State of Vermont around May 9, 2013 saying that your review date for VPharm, VHAP-Pharmacy, VScript, VScript Expanded or Healthy Vermonters has been extended to June 30, 2014.
If you are enrolled only in a pharmacy program, a review form should not have been included with the review notice.
After years of anticipation, Vermont became the first state Monday to publish proposed 2014 individual health insurance rates under the federal health law. Despite Republican and insurers’ predictions, there was no “rate shock” in the new premiums, according to the Vermont governor’s office and insurance representatives.
All Vermont residents who own and occupy their home on April 1 must once again file the Homestead Declaration annually by the due date for filing Vermont income tax returns, which is April 15this year. When homeowners file their declaration, the town is then able to apply the correct education property tax rate to the property. If the property owner does not file a Homestead Declaration by the deadline or by the extended deadline of October 15 (penalties apply after April 15), then the property will be taxed at the higher property tax rate.
