Taxpayer Guide to Identity Theft. This is real folks.

https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/taxpayer-guide-to-identity-theft

REMEMBER THIS:
We(THE IRS) never:

    Initiate contact with taxpayers by email, text or social media to request personal or financial information
    Call taxpayers with threats of lawsuits or arrests
    Call, email or text to request taxpayers’ Identity Protection PINs

Thanks, Dazed. Seems as if the IRS needs to come up with a solution/better method for filing taxes.

I got my Social Security SSA-1099 today. Now I need my 1099 R from the State of Oklahoma and 1099R from my RMDs and I can file. I will file ASAP, but not pay the $200-300 I owe until April. After working with much fraud at the Oklahoma Tax Commission I strongly suggest you file ASAP - if you owe money it is not due until April. What thieves are doing is filing under your SSN, getting a refund, and that stops you from being able to file your return. They create bogus W-2s, and 1099s with stolen EINs. They used to screw up the SS and Medicare withhholdings and IRS would kick them out, but they have finally figured out not to make that mistake. This is getting to be a huge problem. If this happens to you you will have to file forms with both the IRS and State if you have state tax, file paper returns, and this will greatly delay your refund as they investigate. It is in your best interest to file early even if you owe.

D & C - I'm sure I would. I wouldn't let them lick the sweat off my nuts, even if they were dying of thirst. I retired & left 1,600 hours' SL on the table, but that was for my own reasons...had nothing to do with Harassment, which is all that is. "Meet & Greet" is just another phrase, for methods of initiating Confrontations with the Carriers. Trouble is: Every time a new "program" like this is tried, they'll GET a few Bites...so they'll keep coming back, with more. Sad.


I thank God, for every day that I still don't go to the P.O., and it's been 13 years for me.

BB, you will love this, it is called Meet & Greet, and they are doing it in OKC. "Management is approaching carriers after they have called in with what Management is calling a "meet and greet" asking about your recent call-in.If you have reason to believe these questions will lead to discipline (HINT, HINT), you are well within your Weingarten Rights to tell them you do not answer any questions without your Steward present. And stick to that, do not let them tell you it is fine and that no discipline will result. They have to fill out a form (if you are instructed to sign this form, ask for a copy and ask for your Steward), and then they send this form to upper Management with your reasons for calling in, as well as any discipline you currently have AND what station management plans to do with you (like an Investigative Interview)". Could you imagine putting up with this shit again.

They decided to have a 204b mess with me when I had 34 years in and over 2,000 SL, and my reaction was to take a month off on stress leave, and I did that more than once. I burned over 800 hours of SL my last 4 years. I was a great worker until they shit on me.



I was joking with a carrier in Popeye's today in Lake Wales. I told him I had been retired for 15 years, and he said he had 33 years in and can't wait to get out.

/m32663 Travelocity will serve you well. I always use them, or a different travel service (they're all similar, except Priceline, which I don't like). Cheaptickets is a good one, too.

Dazed - I drive cross-country twice a year to snowbird, usually 5-7 night-stays. prefer Hotels.com, mostly for their rewards program. 1 free after 10 stays (actually 10% credit of total of the 10). it's not useful if you don't travel often; "points" expire 1yr after last stay. but if you travel once or twice/yr, decent deal. (course, once/yr would take 10yrs to cash in)
I remember using travelocity for flights, back when I flew, but didn't like choosing/paying, then having them tell me which flight, what time. not sure if that's how they still do that

/m32662 BB, I was the Joker in the office and kept everything hopping. I was the same way at the Tax Commission. Nalcrest is a little too reserved for me. Even my group of single guys act too old. I suggest going to Hooters, and they all think they are too old. You are only too old for Hooters when you are dead. I still have some life left in this old engine, and I am not one to sit around exchanging pictures of grandchildren. Right now I am planning a trip in February to OKC to visit a certain someone. Speaking of the trip, I will never travel again without looking at sites like Travelocity. I will save about $20 a night over what I was quoted on the Hotels website just by using Travelocity. I don't travel to tourist traps, I travel to visit people.

I used to keep my personal life Private at the P.O. - I preferred it, if the people I worked with every day didn't even know if I was married or not. And there were at least 100 times that I was glad they didn't know, too. A large percentage of them were even totally convinced I was a Republican! - only because I didn't offer them any info. But they sure tried, to get their noses up my ass. I used to watch them digging into each others' lives...and none of them meant well. That's what you get, when Management succeeds in creating a Gladiatorial work environment.

/m32658 BB, I have erased bad times at the PO, but I remain in contact with the friends. 15 years out of the PO so when we talk about the PO it is always who can remember the most people. My problem is that I sometimes mix the people from Palm Bay where I carried for 18 years with the people from OKC where I carried for 8 years. I was also a Clerk for 10 years, and a Supervisor at the Detroit BMC for 4 years( could never have been a Carrier Supervisor, but the BMC was very interesting).

Dazed, I am not social at all and would probably do well at Nalcrest.
