Kane County Electronics Recycling Plan Update

Electronic Recycling ImageThere is good news to report on the Electronics Recycling front. In a memo dated August 17, 2016 from Jennifer Jarland, Kane County Recycling Coordinator, it was announced that “…after two months of outreach to and negotiation with numerous villages and cities, we are tentatively in a position to reinstate the Kane County Electronics Recycling Program in mid to late September.”  The memo went on to say that the new drop-off locations will be staffed to avoid dumping issues. Please see the Kane County Recycling webpage for more information.

If you have questions, please contact Jennifer Jarland, recycle@countyofkane.org or 630-208-3841.

IRS Warns of Phone Scam

Stay Alert for IRS Scam Phone Calls

IRS Special Edition Tax Tip 2015-18, October 21, 2015 *from the IRS website

IRS LogoThe IRS continues to warn consumers to guard against scam phone calls from thieves intent on stealing their money or their identity. Criminals pose as the IRS to trick victims out of their money or personal information.

 

The IRS will not:

  • Call you to demand immediate payment. The IRS will not call you if you owe taxes without first sending you a bill in the mail.
  • Demand that you pay taxes and not allow you to question or appeal the amount you owe.
  • Require that you pay your taxes a certain way. For instance, require that you pay with a prepaid debit card.
  • Ask for your credit or debit card numbers over the phone.
  • Threaten to bring in police or other agencies to arrest you for not paying.

If you don’t owe taxes, or have no reason to think that you do:

  • Do not give out any information. Hang up immediately.
  • Contact TIGTA to report the call. Use their “IRS Impersonation Scam Reporting” web page. You can also call 800-366-4484.
  • Report it to the Federal Trade Commission. Use the “FTC Complaint Assistant” on FTC.gov. Please add “IRS Telephone Scam” in the notes.

If you know you owe, or think you may owe tax:

  • Call the IRS at 800-829-1040. IRS workers can help you.
