Information & Updates from Gilmer County Sheriff’s Office

  • There are three Forms regarding Healthcare. 1095A, 1095B, and 1095C. If you had Health Coverage in 2015, you may receive one of these forms. Either from the Marketplace, your Employer, or your Health Insurance Company. These forms have only one purpose: to show proof of insurance. You are absolutely NOT required to call anyone. You simply use the form to file your tax return. If the sender's address is anything other than these three, or there are instructions for you to call ANYONE, please Do Not Call. Notify the Sheriff's Office in your County that you have received a fraudulent tax form. Tax Fraud is a very Serious and Scary business, and unfortunately, very Common. Always take any tax related forms to a Tax Professional to ensure that you do not become a victim!

  • FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE "Okay. This is a follow-up to my post from yesterday. It seems that there may be some legitimacy to some of the "1095C" forms people have received. However, at least one of the forms received by a complainant yesterday was NOT legitimate. I myself received a similar form "1095 B" in the mail that was very similar in nature. Here's what I would suggest. Take the form to whomever prepares your taxes. However, do NOT call a foreign country phone number and give them personal data. This is the situation of one of the complaints from yesterday. Just use due caution and only release your information to people you KNOW, TRUST and are sitting there looking at them. Sorry for any confusion this might have caused anyone. However, you can never be too cautious in today's environment." -Sheriff Stacy Nicholson #gilmersheriff

  • Please correct your post about the Form 1095-C. Double check with Ga Dept of Corrections and you'll see it is no scam. Over 500 people have shared GCSO's post and are helping put out wrong info.

    Stay tuned to the forecast for Monday and Tuesday! Right now there is a chance of snow for north Georgia - particularly the north Georgia mountains. There still remains quite a bit of uncertainty with the forecast, so these snowfall amounts will likely be adjusted through the weekend. www.weather.gov/atlanta

  • #gilmersheriff STACY NICHOLSON - You should clarify that there is a difference between the scam and the receipt of the true 1095c. Otherewise, people are going to be throwing away their 1095c that they need for tax returns. #gilmersheriff

  • ***UPDATE, please read Sheriff Nicholson's follow up statement!!*** Beware of the latest Scam!!!!! We have had a couple of reports today of current AND retired State of Georgia employees receiving VERY official looking "tax information enclosed" mail. The sender obviously has certain accurate personal data and is requesting you provide additional personal data. The form is allegedly a "Form 1095-C" from the Dept. of Treasury. This is a scam, folks! Please do NOT complete this and mail back in as the scammers will then have enough personal data to do serious damage to your financial being. There is a phone number to call on the form which is a foreign number. If you get this type of correspondence, please do NOT reply. Either throw it away or contact the Gilmer Sheriff's Office CID at 706-635-4646. -Sheriff Stacy Nicholson #gilmersheriff
