  • File Taxes Early In CNY To Avoid Identity Theft

    Thursday Jan 26 | via Lite 98.7 

    Did you know filing your taxes early actually helps prevent identity theft? We talked to local tax experts at H&R Block of Rome to find out if this really does help. Did you know the Internal Revenue Service paid out $5.8 billion in refunds to identity thieves in 2013, according to a 2015 report from the General Accounting Office? So how exactly do these thieves do it? Identity thieves take legitimate taxpayers' Social Security numbers so they can file false tax returns and cash in on refund checks.

I am questioning what can happen to a person in the following circumstance. He was arrested 4/2010 for his 3rd DWI offense. At the time of the arrest his alcohol level was over 2.0. It was his 3rd DWI in less that 10 years, second in 3. He agreed to the following: 5 year probation, substance abuse rehab, and a $2500 fine. He has been told by his probaiton officer that he cannot be any where near where alcohol is sold or consumed, and his driver's license was revoked (also fo the 2nd time in 3 years). He has done nothing about rehab, continues to buy and consume alcohol at his place of residence and in bars. He continues to drive. Last week he was arrested for disorderly conduct in a local bar, was incarcerated for 2 nights and let go . His probation officer is aware of everything.
What is your question? If he has previously pled guilty and is awaiting sentencing and his PO knows all about it, he...

I am in probation in ny for a 2nd dwi while on probation I was having medical issues and decided to drive myself to the store to get meds, before I got there u was pulled over and given 5 test none came up with a difinitive result, then I was told I can drive my car home since it was 6 blocks down the street which I did and the cop followed.. then after I got into the car and taken to the station about 1 1/2 hrs later I ws giving the test wich read .11 I told text officer to take my blood since I'm sure it was false reading due to acid reflux.

Can a police officer do what you described? Apparently yes, because you experienced it. Should a police officer allow a...
Do I need my attorney to petition the court for removal of my ingnition interlock device?
I was convicted of Aggravated DWI in New York State. The judge ruled that I have the device for one year, but said that I could petition to have it removed after six months. Am I able to petition the court myself, or does my lawyer need to?
You are always able to petition the court for relief without an attorney, It's called proceeding "pro se". Whether...
Is there a time limit for revoking a NY license after a conviction?
I was "convicted" of a DWI in 1994 in absentia and I question the process because I was not at the sentencing and never informed of the outcome. I only learned of the conviction a few months ago via a self initiated records review. I called the court who THEN informed me of the fine after having to research the case. Then today I received a letter of revocation from DMV. 21 years later! At this point I'm questioning the legality of the whole process. I had no attorney and the case had been adjourned while I attended treatment, never to learn of the outcome until the past couple of weeks. I'm not only going to lose a job that I am up for but my current one as well because it's clear that someone in this court failed to do their job.
Generally speaking, no, there isn't a time limit.
