Westchester County Bee-Line Stuff-A-Bus Food Drive a Success in 2022 https://news.hamlethub.com/yorktown/charities/6371-westchester-county-bee-line-stuff-a-bus-food-drive-a-success-in-20226371-westchester-county-bee-line-stuff-a-bus-food-drive-a-success-in-2022 https://news.hamlethub.com/yorktown/charities/6371-westchester-county-bee-line-stuff-a-bus-food-drive-a-success-in-20226371-westchester-county-bee-line-stuff-a-bus-food-drive-a-success-in-2022

More than 5,600 Pounds of Food Donated for People in Need this Holiday Season

Westchester County’s Bee-Line Stuff-a-Bus Food Drive was a tremendous success for 2022, yielding 5,656 pounds of food for our neighbors in need. The food drive is sponsored by Bee-Line’s SMART Commute Program, in partnership with Feeding Westchester and Stop & Shop, and the equivalent of 4,713 meals were donated to Westchester County families.

Westchester County Executive George Latimer said: “Helping to feed our neighbors in need is more critical now than it ever was, and the need for food among Westchester County residents is increasing. Inflation means higher prices for basic necessities like housing and food, and with two out of five Westchester households at risk of hunger, every little bit helps.”

Donation bins were set up at all 14 Westchester County Stop & Shop stores for shoppers to leave donations, and a Bee-Line Bus was stationed at the Yonkers Stop & Shop with the goal of “stuffing the bus” with much needed food items. Among the donations was stuffing, boxed macaroni and cheese, gravy, canned fruits and vegetables, juice and other Thanksgiving trimmings. Feeding Westchester’s hunger relief network is currently serving more than 200,000 people each month.

As County Residents Face Rising Heat Prices, County Executive Latimer Announces Suspension of Sales Tax on Home Energy Costs https://news.hamlethub.com/yorktown/politics/6367-as-county-residents-face-rising-heat-prices-county-executive-latimer-announces-suspension-of-sales-tax-on-home-energy-costs6367-as-county-residents-face-rising-heat-prices-county-executive-latimer-announces-suspension-of-sales-tax-on-home-energy-costs https://news.hamlethub.com/yorktown/politics/6367-as-county-residents-face-rising-heat-prices-county-executive-latimer-announces-suspension-of-sales-tax-on-home-energy-costs6367-as-county-residents-face-rising-heat-prices-county-executive-latimer-announces-suspension-of-sales-tax-on-home-energy-costs

As County Residents Face Rising Heat Prices, County Executive Latimer Announces Suspension of Sales Tax on Home Energy Costs

View full press conference here: https://youtu.be/zUeO-PC0LRk

Ensuring residents aren’t left out in the cold, and can save some much needed dollars during the Winter months, County Executive George Latimer proposed – and the Board of Legislators subsequently passed – a suspension of sales tax on home energy costs. The exemption will run from December 1-February 28.

Latimer said: “Westchester County Government is constantly looking to find ways to make the lives of residents a little easier. This winter, heating your home will now cost you a little less. As we all face rising costs in our daily lives, this suspension of certain sales tax will add extra dollars to the wallets of those who call Westchester home.”  

The sales tax suspension covers home heating oil, propane, natural gas, electric, coal and wood for residential heating purposes and covers homeowners as well as rental units. Landlords and renters will be eligible depending on the structure of the unit’s heat and electric use.

The initiative is administered by the NYS Department of Taxation and Finance; the vendors will not be assessing sales tax as directed by the State. The sales tax will automatically be taken off the bill.  If you are being charged sales tax for any home energy item starting December 1 please contact the County. 

This measure is in addition to the myriad of actions taken by the Latimer Administration and the Board of Legislators to combat rising inflationary costs nationwide. Those actions include the capping of sales tax on gasoline purchases, waiving of fees at certain parks and pools and – most notably – suspending fares on Bee-Line buses for the summer months.

Board of Legislators Chairwoman Catherine Borgia said: “With a low fuel supply and temperatures expected to be colder than usual, home heating costs will be through the roof this winter. Thankfully through the County's home energy cost reduction relief, more families will stay warm and keep their heads above water.”

Latimer made the announcement at the home of Omar Lopez and Grace O’Shaughnessy in Ossining.

Lopez said: “Thanks to the leadership of County Executive Latimer and the Board of Legislators our family will have an easier time keeping our home warm for the winter while saving much needed money at the same time.”

Harckham Secures $100K for New Westchester County Police Hazardous Response Vehicle https://news.hamlethub.com/yorktown/life/6370-harckham-secures-100k-for-new-westchester-county-police-hazardous-response-vehicle6370-harckham-secures-100k-for-new-westchester-county-police-hazardous-response-vehicle https://news.hamlethub.com/yorktown/life/6370-harckham-secures-100k-for-new-westchester-county-police-hazardous-response-vehicle6370-harckham-secures-100k-for-new-westchester-county-police-hazardous-response-vehicle

New York State Senator Pete Harckham announced today that he has secured $100,000 in state grant funding for Westchester County Police to purchase a new Hazardous Response Vehicle. The new vehicle, which has not been delivered yet, will replace the county’s existing heavy duty Hazardous Devices Unit (HDU) Bomb Response Vehicle, a 2008 GMC Utility Truck.

“Making sure that county police and emergency personnel have up-to-date equipment and proper resources in order to safeguard our communities is a top priority of mine,” said Harckham. “Westchester County, with its mix of cities, suburban villages and rural areas, poses certain challenges in terms of public safety, and a new Hazardous Response Vehicle will benefit both police officers and residents. I am happy to have helped gain this important investment for the county while also alleviating some of the financial burden on taxpayers.”

“This grant is only the latest way that Senator Harckham has helped the County government provide critical services to the people of Westchester,” said Westchester County Executive George Latimer. “He is a tireless advocate for Westchester, and we appreciate his efforts on our behalf. This grant funding assists our Department of Public Safety and Department of Probation in providing services that are vital to the safety and security of our residents. ”

Westchester County’s current Hazardous Response Vehicle has outlived its usefulness, and because of electrical problems in the vehicle, a complete overhaul of the system is necessary. In addition, the response vehicle no longer meets the Hazardous Response Unit’s space and operational needs.

The new Hazardous Response Vehicle, now on order, will have four-wheel drive capacity, giving it extra range throughout the county on back roads and remote areas while maintaining full equipment loads. The plan is to utilize the new vehicle for a minimum of 10 years of service, and the vehicle will be used a regional tool to respond to bomb threats and hazardous device calls, as well as storing updated equipment to maintain the bomb squad’s accreditation status.

The full cost of the new Hazardous Response Vehicle is $289,661. About two-thirds of the vehicle’s cost is being funded with a 2019 Bomb Squad Initiative grant awarded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and administered through the New York State Department of Homeland security and Emergency Services.

“We are grateful to Senator Harckham for securing this grant for the Westchester County Police Hazardous Devices Unit,” said Terrance Raynor, acting commissioner of Westchester’s Department of Public Safety. “The funding will help us to replace an aging vehicle and ensure that the Hazardous Devices Unit can continue to respond to calls for service throughout Westchester County.”

The awarded grant funding was secured within the State and Municipal Facilities Program (SAM), which is among the grant programs administered by the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (DASNY) to support community and economic development. Harckham has delivered more than $1.2 million of state grant funding to first responders and emergency personnel in SD40 municipalities and nonprofits over the past four years.

Not too much, not too little - taxpayers should check if their tax withholding is just right https://news.hamlethub.com/yorktown/life/6366-not-too-much-not-too-little-taxpayers-should-check-if-their-tax-withholding-is-just-right6366-not-too-much-not-too-little-taxpayers-should-check-if-their-tax-withholding-is-just-right https://news.hamlethub.com/yorktown/life/6366-not-too-much-not-too-little-taxpayers-should-check-if-their-tax-withholding-is-just-right6366-not-too-much-not-too-little-taxpayers-should-check-if-their-tax-withholding-is-just-right

There are good surprises and there are bad surprises. Generally, a tax-related surprise is probably unwanted. To avoid tax surprises, people should review their tax withholding. There’s still time left in 2022 to make changes and see the benefit on their tax return next year. An adjustment made now will help people avoid the surprise of a balance due or a larger-than-expected refund. People who owe taxes when they file may also face a penalty for underpayment, so they should take steps to avoid that.

It’s an especially good idea to check withholding when a taxpayer has a big life change. Events like marriage, divorce, a new child, a new home purchase, or changes in tax laws can all be reasons to adjust withholding.

Credit amounts may change each year. Taxpayers can visit IRS.gov and use the Interactive Tax Assistant to identify whether they qualify for any tax credits that may call for a withholding adjustment.

Taxes are pay as you go
Taxes are generally paid throughout the year, whether from salary withholding, quarterly estimated tax payments or a combination of both. About 70% of taxpayers, however, withhold too much every year. This typically results in a refund.

A few other facts about refunds:

  • Proper withholding adjustments help people boost their take home pay rather than overwithholding taxes throughout the year and getting it back as a tax refund.
  • While the IRS issues most refunds in 21 days or less from an error-free electronic tax return, it may take longer for different reasons.
  • It’s generally not a good idea to rely on a refund for big purchases.
  • Direct Deposit is the easiest and most convenient way to get a refund. The IRS issues more than 90% of all refunds this way.
  • Paper return processing delays stemming from the pandemic are six months or more. The IRS COVID-19 operations page offers complete details.

Tax Withholding Estimator
The Tax Withholding Estimator can help people determine if they have too much income tax withheld and how to make an adjustment. In other cases, it can help taxpayers see if they should withhold more or make an estimated tax payment to avoid a tax bill when they file their tax return next year.

Other items may affect 2022 taxes
Some unforeseen life events can make withholding adjustments necessary. They include:

Veteran entrepreneurs: Spot the scams https://news.hamlethub.com/yorktown/life/6365-veteran-entrepreneurs-spot-the-scams6365-veteran-entrepreneurs-spot-the-scams https://news.hamlethub.com/yorktown/life/6365-veteran-entrepreneurs-spot-the-scams6365-veteran-entrepreneurs-spot-the-scams

The FTC joins the country in honoring veteran entrepreneurs and their families this National Veterans Small Business Week. We offer thanks as you continue to serve communities all over the nation through your businesses. Unfortunately, scammers are ready to take your hard-earned profits and steal your sensitive business data. So, this week, take time to talk to your employees about how scams happen.

For example, scammers send fake invoices for products no one ordered and hope that someone pays them. They try to trick businesses into paying for things that are free from the government, like occupational safety posters. Or they might call offering a spot in a non-existent local business directory, but it’s a scam. And utilities impersonators call businesses pretending to be the gas, electric, or water company and threatening to cut service due to unpaid bills. But that’s a scammer calling. One way to tell? They ask for payment with wire transfergift card, or cryptocurrency, which are ways scammers tell you to pay. And if you pay, you’ll lose your money to the scam.

Cyber scammers might be looking to trick you and your employees with phishing emails or calls that seem to come from a business you know. These business impersonators want sensitive information like passwords or bank information.

A trained workforce is your best defense.

  • Encourage your staff to talk with their coworkers if they spot a scam. Scammers often target multiple people in an organization.
  • Create a culture of security. Train employees not to share passwords or sensitive information, check invoices closely, and avoid clicking on unexpected email or text message links.
  • Share information with your staff. Order free copies of Scams and Your Small Business (also available in Spanish) and Cybersecurity for Small Business. Then share them with your staff. Watch and share these videos.
