Scam warning issued by tax board Transfer (EFT) tax payment did not go through and di- rects the taxpayer to another website. FTB does not send e-mail notices regarding EFT pay- ment rejections. If FTB has a question about a taxpayer's EFT payment, normal proce- dures are to call the taxpayer or send a bill through the mail. The IRS is aware of this The Franchise Tax Board (FTB) is warning taxpayers about a potential phishing scheme via e-mail and cautions taxpayers not to respond to the e-mail. FTB has received calls from concerned taxpayers who have received what looks like an official e-mail from a tax agency. The e-marl warns taxpayers that their federal Electronic Funds Additional polling place workers needed scam and provides guidance about this and other scams at its website. The Board of Equalization also reports hearing from its taxpayers about the same scam and has issued a simi- lar warning. Taxpayers receiving suspi- cious e-mails should not click on the link or respond to the sender. Anyone who has a question about an FTB EFT payment should check his bank When the ballot has local candidates or measures on it, there are sometimes unex- pected changes in staffing the polling places. Plumas County is fortunate to have many dedicated, long- time poll workers who serve the voters of the county at every election, but when a local race occurs and a worker is a public supporter of a candidate or measure, changes have to be made. Poll workers can either work in another area of the county or they'll have to sit the election out. To maintain a neutral, safe and open election process, members of campaign com- mittees or published lists of supporters are asked not to participate in working at the precinct where the race will be voted upon. For information about becoming a poll worker for the Nov. 2 election, contact the Elections Division of the County Clerk's office at 283-6129 by Oct. 22.
