Answer: Ruff Housing is under new ownership, according to a spokeswoman for Ruff Housing.

“Yes, all Ruff Housing locations have been sold as of October 2021 to Destination Pet.”

Ruff Housing has two locations in Winston-Salem, and one location each in Greensboro and Cary.

Destination Pet is a “nationwide network of Connected Care centers offering veterinary services, daycare, boarding, grooming, training, and more, all under one roof or at nearby locations,” according to its website.

Destination Pet is headquartered in Highlands Ranch, Colorado.

Q: When is the IRS going to address the backlog in the processing center for tax returns? My return for 2021 was delivered to the IRS in Kanas on Feb. 23. (I paid for post office tracking mail.) It has still not been logged in. I check weekly on the website. Also, it is impossible to get anyone on the phone. Can you tell me how to contact them for information?

A: The Internal Revenue Service will not discuss a specific taxpayer’s situation. The following is general information from an IRS spokesperson.

The IRS has processed all error-free returns that were received before October 2021.

“We are continuing to reroute tax returns and taxpayer correspondence from locations that are behind to locations where more staff is available, and we are taking other actions to minimize any delays. Tax returns are opened and processed in the order received.

“As the return is processed, whether it was filed electronically or on paper, it may be delayed because it has a mistake including errors concerning the Recovery Rebate Credit and the Child Tax Credit, is missing information, or there is suspected identity theft or fraud.

“The best bet for taxpayers wishing to track their refunds remains our ‘Where’s my Refund?’ tool and viewing their account online. Calling the IRS 800 number would not provide any different information; our assistors have the same data taxpayers have when using these tools.

“What you should do: In most instances, no further action is needed but you may check ‘Where’s my Refund?’ or you can view your account. If you filed electronically and received an acknowledgement, you do not need to take any further action other than promptly responding to any requests for information. If you filed on paper, check Where’s my Refund? If it tells you we have received your return or are processing or reviewing it, we are processing your return, but it may be under review,” the spokesperson said.
