Virginia Department of Corrections recognizes Correctional Officers' Correctional officers in Vir- ginia's prison system work hard every day to make Virginia a safer place to live. Their dedi- cation to public safety will be honored May 5-11, which is re- cognized as Correctional Offi- cers' Week in the Common- wealth. "Correctional officers have chosen a challenging profession which does not always receive the recognition it deserves," said Department of Corrections Dir- ector Harold Clarke. "As committed public servants, they work with a population that has Week many needs, successfully build- ing on a foundation of safety and security to provide guidance, education, and rehabilitation - a better path forward." Throughout the week, the Virginia Department of Correct- ions (VADOC) will recognize and honor Virginia's correctional officers. In recent years, correctional officers have taken a lead role in implementing evidence-based practices and preparing offenders for success- ful life outside the prison sys- tem. Re-entry preparation begins with an offender's first contact with the VADOC. "Visiting correctional faci- lities in the Commonwealth, i have witnessed firsthand the professionalism and dedication of our officers. They ensure safety in our facilities and have worked hard to implement the Governor's Re-Entry Initiative," said Secretary of Public Safety Maria Graft Decker. "Our correctional officers are well trained, motivated, and ready for every challenge." More information on the VADOC can be found at Tips to start planning next year's tax return For most taxpayers, the tax deadline has passed. But plan- ning for next year can start now. The IRS reminds taxpayers that being organized and planning ahead can save time and money in 2014. Here are six things you can do now to make next April 15 easier. Adjust your withholding. Each year, millions of American workers have far more taxes withheld from their pay than is required. Now is a good time to review your withholding to make the taxes withheld from your pay closer to the taxes you'll owe for this year. This is especially true if you normally get a large refund and you would like more money in your pay- check. If you owed tax when you filed, you may need to increase the federal income tax withheld from your wages. Use the IRS Withholding Calculator at to complete a new Form W-4, Employee's With- holding Allowance Certificate. Store your return in a safe place. Put your 2012 tax return and supporting documents some- where safe. If you need to refer to your return in the future, you'll know where to find it. For example you may need a copy of your return when applying for a home loan or financial aid. You can also use it as a helpful guide for next year's return. Organize your records. Est- ablish one location where everyone in your household can put tax-related records during the year. This will avoid a scramble for misplaced mileage logs or charity receipts come tax time. Shop for a tax professional. If you use a tax professional to help you with tax planning, start your search now. You'll have more time when you're not up against a deadline or anxious to receive your tax refund. Choose a tax professional wisely.
