Up in Flames

Back in 2005, a load of estimated payments ended up “swimming with the fishes” when a driver of a truck went off the San Mateo Bridge into the San Francisco Bay. Believe it or not, a similar incident happened last month in New Jersey.

A US Postal Service truck caught fire in an accident on the New Jersey Turnpike. The mail was destined for New Jersey state offices, including the Department of Taxation. The USPS believes this was mail collected from September 7th to 10th in New Jersey. If your mail went up in smoke, the New Jersey Department of Taxation has procedures in place so that you will not be penalized. Kay Bell has more.
