The Item: Business - Businesses must account for personal property

The award for the understatement of the year goes to.... drum roll please.
Latham Harris!
Mr. Harris is Sumter County's Assessor and claims he has noticed "... a lot of folks aren't making returns..."
Most any man-on-the-street will tell you that there are a lot of folks who don't want Mr. Harris or anybody else associated with taxes knowing their business. While there may be a few people who really don't know they are obligated to pay taxes on their assets which are used to make money, many more hide theirs. If they don't report that they are in business they remain untaxed!
A Fair Tax system or consumption tax would eliminate the problem of finding those tax avoiding scoundrels.... just saying..

The Item: News - Fired deputy speaks out

Alex Dukes, a former Sumter County Sheriff's Deputy Claims innocence and is fighting back through The Item, Sumter's premier news source.
Dukes claims to know a little about former Lee County Sheriff 'Big Dog' Melvin... claims that there are enough rumors going around for everybody including himself and that they don't bother him.
This former law enforcement officer and his family seemingly had it all until something occurred that sparked an investigation into the family's finances.
Dukes wants to sell their 2009 Cadillac Escalade, one of four vehicles the couple have and published his phone number: "....call him at (803) 968-6482..."
I dunno... soon there may be more former cops and politicians in the lockup than the run of the mill criminal... just saying...
