RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - A mistake by the Department of Revenue is resulting in the mailing of nearly 43,000 corrected Form 1099-Gs to taxpayers. The corrected forms will be mailed this month.

The problem is sourced to consumer tax not being included on the original form, which was mailed in January.

"The error generally only affected 1099-Gs for taxpayers who itemized deductions on their 2013 federal return and claimed use tax owed on their 2013 North Carolina state return," according to an agency statement.

The 1099-G provides taxpayers with the amount of their state tax refunds issued during 2014. That amount may need to be reported as income on the taxpayer’s 2014 federal individual income tax return.

RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - While the rate of new HIV diagnoses continues to decline, an estimated 36,300 people were living with HIV infection in North Carolina according to the state's 2013 Epidemiologic Report on HIV and STDs.

"We have developed strategies to keep clients in care and bring costs down, while preventing adverse outcomes such as hospitalization and drug resistance to effective medication," said Jacquelyn Clymore, HIV/STD Director, in a news release.  "These strategies include the addition of 'bridge counselors' who focus on retention in care and locating HIV positive patients lost to care in an effort to link them to treatment and medication."  

DPH continues to promote its three part strategy of testing, medical care, and retention of  care.

African Americans continue to be disproportionately affected by HIV disease, according to the report.
