Thanks to Verizon Wireless and the State of New York. The checks are a refund of the NY State Gross receipts surcharge that Verizon collected from customers to recover the costs of taxes that Verizon Wireless pays to the State. Then NY State refunded one of the taxes to Verizon and we get some money back.
Equally interesting is the note above the check signature that the check may not be cashed at a check cashing agency or money service business. Huh. Why not?
Not sure how I’ll spend the whole $16.74 but hey, never look a gift horse in the mouth so I’ll take it and say thanks.
Happy Friday. I have two posts coming up this weekend from you guys – one from Riverside Dog Walker in his new environment, Sarasota, and another from Earth Image, reconnecting after his trek to South Carolina to see the eclipse. Also related, pix from CosHarbour.
The weather can’t get any more beautiful than it is today although it poured around 1:30 last night, causing me to leap out of bed and shut a hundred windows. Bright blue sky today and for the whole weekend.
Not so for Texans in the path of Harvey. It looks to be a big storm but the jaded New Yorker in me, when watching the news about the storm, thinks the media wants this to be a Katrina moment for Trump, so many libs screaming he doesn’t have a FEMA director. Um, Bush had a FEMA director and that didn’t do much. Obama did too. Oh well.
Have a great day…..
