Editorial: IRS rule makes survival more taxing for small business | Warsaw's Country Courier

As many businesses are beginning to apply for loan forgiveness for the Payroll Protection Program, the Internal Revenue Service has ruled that the expenses – wages as well as the other covered costs – cannot be deducted as an expense if the loan is forgiven.

Back in April when small businesses were struggling to deal with the sudden loss of revenue caused by the government-ordered COVID-19 shut-down, the Payroll Protection Program offered some hope. It wa

Warsaw Fire Department & Rescue Squad

In an effort to give everyone some Christmas cheer this year during the Moonlight Magic night on December 4th, we have decided to do the Firetruck Christmas Parade around the village so families do not have to leave their homes to see Santa and the firetrucks if they choose to. We encourage people to come out and stand by the curb to view Santa, but maintain social distancing with your neighbors. We are also driving by East Side Rehabilitation Center as well as the Cloisters so those residents can view the parade as well. We will be leaving the Ag Center at 7:30pm and heading down to Brooklyn street over to Liberty Street. We will be arriving with Santa around 7:50-8pm at the Monument for the annual lighting of the monument. We hope everyone enjoys this experience from the comforts of their own homes and possibly starting a new tradition during these difficult times.

State Police warn of grandparent scam

The New York State Police are warning the public of a recent increase of phone scams to elderly citizens.
This scam includes a few different scenarios:
• The caller claims to be a family member who has an illness or was arrested. This caller will put urgency on helping them and not to contact other family members.
• The caller claims to be a law enforcement official with a family member under arrest demanding bail or funds — police agencies do not contact family for bail money.
The caller in both scenarios will advise the victim to get a specific amount of money and buy gift cards from popular stores such as Wal-Mart, Home Depot, Lowes, Target and other big retail stores. The victim is told to call a number and read off the gift card identification number.
If you receive a call you believe to be a scam:
• Resist the urge to act immediately, no matter how dramatic the story is.
• Verify the caller’s identity. Ask questions that a stranger couldn’t answer. Check with a family member to see if the information is true.
• Don’t send cash, gift cards or money transfers. Once the scammer gets the money, it’s gone.
State Police advise that if you have parents or elderly people in your family, take the time to explain this scam to them.

Wyoming County Board of Supervisors Chairwoman Rebecca Ryan reports that Wyoming County is experiencing an increase in positive COVID-19 cases among residents.
“These cases are not specific to any particular area of Wyoming County; all quadrants have seen increasing activity over the last month,” Ryan said in a statement. “Neighboring counties across Western New York and the Finger Lakes region are also experiencing case increases and community transmission. The weather is changing, gatherings are moving indoors where people are in closer contact with others and it’s the beginning of the traditional cold and flu season. The Health Department is reminding residents to wear face coverings, maintain social distance and practice good hand hygiene.”
As of Wednesday, Nov. 4, the number of cases in the county was up to 220, with 21 active cases. All active cases are in mandatory isolation.
There were also 117 people in mandatory quarantine and 173 in precautionary quarantine.
The number of recoveries in the county was up to 194.
