If it seems like tax scams that use email and phone calls that appear to come from the IRS are common these days, it’s because they are, unfortunately. Such scams often use the IRS name and logo or fake websites that can look real.
All of which is another reason to pass along this important reminder – the IRS will never initiate contact with you through email, social media or text to ask for your personal or financial information. If someone does and claims to be from the IRS, it’s a scam.
The IRS provides a lot of helpful information and tips on identifying and reporting tax scams at its website.
It’s not all work all the time here at Galecki Financial Management. We make sure to take time out for the things important us – especially when it comes to family. Below is a picture of our founder and proud grandpa Greg Galecki with his beautiful granddaughter, Cora.
This summer, the Galecki team was pleased to participate in the Fort Wayne Sport Club’s second annual Kickball Tournament benefitting Turnstone Center for Children and Adults with Disabilities.
Turnstone has been meeting the needs of children and adults with disabilities for over 68 years, offering a wide range of therapies, including for speech, physical occupational and aquatic. It also offers adult and child day care services, and a health and wellness center.
It was a ton of fun being a part of this event supporting a great local organization that helps so many in our community. This was our first team effort at kickball and we have a long way to go from a performance perspective. We lost all three games easily – in fact, it would not surprise us if a “Mercy Rule” is implemented for next year.
On the other hand, we could have taken the award for Best Dressed Team – we sported very colorful socks, as you can see.
Most importantly, we all enjoyed the day tremendously. (We just hope the game highlights are not posted on YouTube.)
