IRS Tax Help Online

We are about a month away from that April 15th tax deadline. The Internal Revenue Service today encouraged taxpayers working on their 2014 returns to take advantage of the numerous online tools and resources available on  The website
  and its online tools, such as the Interactive Tax Assistant, can answer most taxpayer questions — getting them the tax help they need, when they need it. The Interactive Tax Assistant can answer a wide range of tax questions, including newer areas of the tax law, like the Affordable Care Act. Taxpayers get the same answers as if they’d called and spoken with an IRS representative on the phone line, and they can print out the answers for their records. Taxpayers preparing their own tax return or looking for free tax preparation will find that provides answers to many tax questions in a user-friendly format. This year for the first time, there is a searchable directory on that will help taxpayers find a tax professional with credentials and select qualifications to help them prepare their tax returns. And, everyone can find an option to prepare and e-file tax returns for free through Free File also found at

Drugs en route from Mexico to Wilkesboro were stopped in their tracks by the DEA and Wilkes Sheriff’s Department.  Wilkes Sheriff Chris Shew said they received information that a man considered to be a major drug dealer in eastern Wilkes and Yadkin counties would be traveling on Hwy 421 on the way to Wilkesboro to make a drug sale. The man was stopped by Wilkes Sheriff’s Officials.  145 grams of meth, scales, cell phone and a Xanax pill were seized from the car.  The driver, Davis Cook Howell, 33, of Boonville, was charged with possession with intent to sell and deliver meth, maintaining a vehicle for a controlled substance and two counts of trafficking meth.

Fraudulent Tax Returns and ID Theft in Wilkes

Two more Wilkes residents have fallen victim to ID Theft and Tax Fraud.  One victim was from North Wilkesboro and the other from Millers Creek.  Both the reports were similar in that when they went to file their income tax, they were informed that someone had already filed a return using their Social Security number.  Both have contacted the IRS and the Wilkes Sheriff's Office.  There is no word on suspects at this time.  Identity theft places a burden on its victims and presents a challenge to businesses, organizations and government agencies, including the IRS. Tax-related identity theft occurs when someone uses your stolen Social Security number to file a tax return claiming a fraudulent refund. You may be unaware you are a victim until you receive an IRS notice or you file your return, but it is rejected because your SSN already has been used. It's important that you take steps to protect all of your personally identifiable information. The IRS offers some Tips to Protect your SSN and identifiable information:  Keep your card and any other document that shows your Social Security number in a safe place; DO NOT routinely carry your card or other documents that display your number; ONLY share your SSN when absolutely necessary; and Protect you personal financial information at home and on your computer.  If you discover that someone else is using your Social Security Number:  File a report with the local police and file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission at .  You may also call the FTC Identity Theft Hotline at 1-877-438-4338.
