See the above link for the full story. There most likely will be more on this, especially within the courts, possibly ending up in the Supreme Court. Only time will tell. 

*** SCAM TIME ***
It's that special time of year. SCAMS dealing with multiple parts of all out lives. Those mostly in the mix now  deal with the IRS and Social Security. They contact you via phone and email in an attempt to get your personal information. NEVER give out any information to any of these calls or emails. In particular, the IRS and SSA do not contact you in this way, they will send you a letter. If you get a call, hang up. If you get an email, do not click on any links, just delete it. If you think something might be real, locate the actual phone number for the service
and call them directly. Please beware; don't get caught up in these things.

The 2019 Reunion will be in Hartford, Connecticut  - June 27 - 30, 2019
