Fire Dept No Longer under IRS Investigation


The IRS has completed its investigations on the Volunteer Fire Co. of Halfway, Maryland, according to its president, James Kimble. The investigations were on alleged missing gaming money. Kimble said the investigation that started last year has been detrimental to fund raising efforts by the Fire Co. This included the annual fund raising events and bingo attendances.

The Fire department has two annual fund raising events – one for free services and another for ambulance services. In August last year, Kimble contacted Washington County Director of Gaming, Jim Hovis about the apparent disappearance of tip jar and bingo money. Hovis then investigated the issue before alerting the Maryland State Police Department in November. This resulted in investigations by the police and the IRS.
