The Department of Transportation (DelDOT) announces that the Woodland Ferry is shut down for routine maintenance and its annual Coast Guard inspection.

Tax preparers

The Internal Revenue Service is contacting more than 2,600 Delaware tax return preparers to remind them they must renew their Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN). The IRS will require the use of the PTIN on all federal returns prepared by paid tax return preparers starting Jan. 1, 2011. The IRS recently sent notices to 2,644 Delaware tax professionals who currently have PTINs as a reminder to renew. Recipients are urged to avoid any last minute rush by renewing their PTIN online now. Tax professionals who received their PTIN prior to the new system launch on Sept. 28, as well as those who do not currently have a PTIN must register using the IRS Tax Professional Sign-Up System at There is a $64.25 fee. The nine-digit PTIN was created several years ago so tax preparers could avoid using their Social Security Number as identification on the tax returns that they prepare. The requirement to use the PTIN is one of the provisions in a new oversight program to help regulate the tax preparation industry. Everyone paid to prepare all or substantially all of any federal tax return or claim for refund must have a PTIN. The requirement applies to all tax return preparers, including those who are enrolled agents, Certified Public Accountants and attorneys.
