Where Are the Taxpayer Advocates?
Are you feeling pushed around? "Bullied" by a taxing authority? Whether it is a notice, nexus questionnaire, audit, appeals process, collections, tax liens, etc., does it feel like states are NOT behaving in a fair manner? I think so.
I know this is nothing new, but it seems to be getting worse since states are hurting for money.
If you are having this problem, please let me know. I would love to hear about your "nightmare." Maybe we can collectively do something about it (who knows).
Please send me an e-mail at email@example.com with your story, or leave a comment on this post.

Because state and local taxes are deceptively simple and endlessly complicated.
