Under an omnibus parks bill passed in the waning days of the 95th Congress, the Cacapon River in West Virginia will be studied for possible inclusion in the nation's protected Wild and, Scenic River System. Until the study is completed, which could take as long as five years, the bill places no restriction on the river, ac- cording to an aide to the House National Parks and Territories Subcommittee. The Cacapon River runs north from George Washington National Forest to the .Potomac River at Cacapon. The Omnibus parks bill awaits the signature of President Carter. In addition to the Cacapon study, the bill would create numerous new or extended national parks, wilderness areas, national trails and wild and scenic rivers around the country. The report will make recommendatious for including all or part of the river in the wild and scenic system. Rivers classified as wild and scenic are protected from development in order to preserve natural beauty and primitive setting. Tax Returns Of Pmtne ips Get By ins Parkersburg, WV -- The Federal tax returns of part- nerships, particularly those showing losses exceeding $26,0e0, are coming under closer scrutiny, the Internal Revenue Service said today. The tax collection agency said that beginning with partnership returns filed during fiscal 1978 (October I, 1977-September ~o; 1978)it has doubled its efforts to determine the tax potential ef these kinds of returns. Included in this category is income from any partnership, syndicate, group pool, or any other venture whish is not a trust, estate or corporation for Federal income tax purposes. The IRS said that, in the past, partnership returns have not been subject to the same examination emphasis as cor- porate or individual returns. The increased activity in the partnership area is part of the IRS' program to detect questionable tax shelters. Approximately 30 per cent of returns showing losses ex- ceeding $25,000 will be examined, the IRS said.
