Are you eligible for a Turbo Tax settlement check?

The checks will automatically start going out in the mail (soon).

Two things. If you used Turbo Tax in 2016, 2017, or 2018. Or you qualified for the IRS free file program, but Turbo Tax charged you. How much will I receive?

The short answer is between $30 and $85 depending on how many years you used the service. Note: Please don’t fall for a scam. There is no form to fill out and no information you have to give to anyone.

Prayers for all involved

Members of the Western Conference of the United Methodist Church has approved to ‘allow each individual congregation to disaffiliate from the United Methodist Church’. In total, 192 North Carolina churches will disaffiliate, including 72 from across the Piedmont Triad.  These churches are looking to separate from the organization because of their ‘Conservative Biblical’ stand on sexuality and same-sex marriage.

For the Methodist churches whose disaffiliation request is approved, the change will take effect within 60 days of the final decision. https://www.wfmynews2.com/article/news/local/conference-held-to-approve-request-for-disaffiliation-from-united-methodist-church-western-north-carolina/
