IRS issues alert on new phishing scam
The South Carolina Department of Revenue (SCDOR) urges South Carolinians to be aware and on guard against a new phishing scam attempting to fraudulently access personal information. The IRS has issued a warning to tax preparers and taxpayers to watch out for fake emails seeking updated personal or professional information that are actually phishing schemes. The phishing email asks tax professionals to update their IRS e-services portal information and Electronic Filing Identification Numbers (EFINs). The links in the phishing email appear to be a scheme to gather your username and password information. For more information, contact the SCDOR Public Affairs Office at (803) 898-5773.
Beaufort library to reduce hours
The special local history collection and archives unit of the Beaufort County Library will implement a reduction in hours that the research room is open to the public. This reduction is due to a staffing shortage. The Beaufort District Collection’s Research Room will be open to the general public on Mondays and Fridays from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; however, the public must call ahead to make an appointment to receive Research Room services on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays (appointment times available from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.). Research Room Services will not be provided on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays without advance prior arrangement with BDC staff. The new hours will go into effect beginning Monday, March 9th and will continue until further notice.
