Not thinking about your 2016 tax return yet? Identity thieves are.

Here’s a thought to warm the Grinch’s heart: while you’re focused on the holiday season, identity thieves are thinking about how to steal your information. One of the ways they try to do that is by filing a fake tax return using your information — like your Social Security number — to get a tax refund. You may only find out about it when you get a letter from the IRS. Or when you file your return, only to hear from the IRS that someone else already did. That’s tax identity theft, a problem we hear more about each year.

And then a light bulb went off in your head

The days are suddenly getting shorter and you want to add some brightness without spinning the electricity meter like a dreidel.  But you haven’t bought light bulbs in a very long time and the light bulb aisle at the store seems, well, different.

As it turns out, things have changed. Shopping for light bulbs isn’t what you’re used to, and might not feel as simple. The good news is that bulbs are more efficient than ever.  And, when it comes to brightness, it’s not about wattage anymore – it’s about “lumens.” But the other good news? Here’s a quick video to, ahem, shine a light on shopping for the right light bulbs for you.
