So many people thought 2016 was the worst year ever, but we haven't even really begun 2017, and some new laws in Michigan are going to help keep things down. How about more taxes and fees? Yep, we got 'em! There are also some good things, too, though.
First, the bad. Taxes and fees are going up. Way up.
It's the season for tax scams. One in West Michigan is targeting Calvin College students.
Wood TV 8 reports that the FBI contacted Calvin to warn of a scam in which students are contacted by phone and told they need to pay an "education tax".
It's not hard to believe that tax season is a scary time.
We're all stressed out over tax filing. What is hard to believe is the new component of tax time, identity theft and scams. We're hearing more and more stories about peoples refunds already taken by a scammer.
Happy to see gas prices coming down. Can you believe we are happy with $3.90 gas. There are those who say the government isn't doing all it can to bring prices down because higher pump prices mean more gas tax money to Lansing. I don't know if that is true...
