Attorney General Marc Dann pledged Monday to conduct an "unprecedented multi-jurisdictional" drive to investigate alleged predatory lenders and take criminal or civil action against them. Mr. Dann said the new Ohio Homebuyers Protection Act that took effect Jan. 1, 2007 gives the attorney general enforcement authority over abusive lending practices on the part of loan officers, mortgage brokers or non-bank lenders.

"It is my goal as attorney general to make Ohio the least-friendly state for predatory lenders and unscrupulous, and unconscionable, and fraudulent lenders of all types," Mr. Dann said at a news conference. We're going to put an end to predatory lending which has caused, among other factors, Ohio's home foreclosure rate to be the highest in the country, which caused Ohio's bankruptcy rate to be the second-highest in the country, and in many cases has driven people out of their homes," he recently stated.

"We are going to engage in a campaign, really unprecedented in Ohio history, working on multi-jurisdictional levels with the U.S. Attorney and the FBI, working with local prosecutors and local police departments ... to take on these mortgage lenders," Mr. Dann said.

Ms. Ballard is co-author of Ohio Consumer Law, a manual for attorneys who practice in that area.

The U.S. Treasury Department has abolished a tax law that will likely result in multimillion-dollar refunds for business users. The abolished tax is the federal excise tax of 3% on all long-distance calls. The tax was originally implemented in 1898 as a luxury tax on wealthy Americans who owned telephones.

According to the Treasury Department, the IRS will issue refunds to consumers and business customers for taxes paid over the past three years in their 2006 filings. In a press release issued earlier this year, Treasury Secretary John Snow stated, "Today is a good day for American taxpayers; it marks the beginning of the end of an outdated, antiquated tax that has survived a century beyond its original purpose, and by now should have been ancient history."

Key facts regarding the tax refund:
* No immediate action is required by taxpayers.
* Refunds will be a part of 2006 tax returns filed in 2007.
* Refund claims will cover all excise tax paid on long-distance service over the last three years (time allowed given statute of limitations). Interest will be paid on refunds.
* The IRS is working on a simplified method for individuals to use to claim a refund on their 2006 tax returns.
* Refunds will not include tax paid on local telephone service, which was not involved in the litigation.

Businesses are not required to dig through all of their old phone records to calculate their telephone tax refund. The IRS has developed a formula that most businesses can use to determine their refund. To use the formula, eligible taxpayers will need to review their phone bills for 2 months, instead of all bills included in the refund period. Additionally, businesses will need to know their total telephone expenses for the period and the number of employees reported on their federal withholding tax return (Form 941) for the second quarter of 2006 in order to use the formula.
