Video

– Hey, everyone. Well, I heard something interesting on the radio today, and it’s that people are being scammed by someone calling from the IRS and claiming that there are police officers in their neighborhood and if they don’t pay their, delinquent taxes that the cops are going to come pick them up.

Every Day is the Same. Every Day Sucks. At least you’re getting overtime. But wait – there’s more. You wanted to start the year off with a bang, so you back in December, you scheduled Financial Accounting and Reporting for April 21. No Rest for the Weary.
