Update: Tax Scams in the Ark-La-Tex
In the December 2015 newsletter, we published a warning about tax scams whereby imposters claiming to be IRS agents contacted an individual with the intent of collecting phony income taxes, penalties, and interest. According to a recent article by KTBS (internet link provided below), this problem appears to be getting worse and closer to home for residents of the Ark-La-Tex.
For a complete list of recent tax scams, check out the consumer alert issued by the IRS.
I was born on November 21, 1982 at Glenwood Regional Medical Center in West Monroe, Louisiana. My father, however, was in a duck blind that morning off a rural highway some 25 miles outside the Monroe city limits. Needless to say, I was going to be raised an avid hunter who would appreciate the outdoors.
Four years later, Dad was back at his favorite duck hole on a frigid morning in late November. This time around, I accompanied him armed with a single-shot, 4-10 shotgun. Mallards, pintail, and widgeon were on the move, as we maneuvered a pirogue through flooded timber to recover the most recent of the morning’s harvest. Out of nowhere, four mallards swooped over the opening of the flooded timber directly overhead. Without missing a beat, Dad grabbed the shotgun, pointed it in the direction of the sailing birds, and yelled at me to pull the trigger. A green-head mallard drake splashed into the water in front of the boat, and a sportsman was born.
