U.S. Tax Court Mail Service Disrupted
Mail service to the U.S. Tax Court has been disrupted since October 19 due to the temporary closure of the U.S. Postal Service facility that serves the Tax Court. No mail delivery to the Tax Court has occurred since October 19, and no date has been announced for resumption of mail delivery.
Parcels delivered to the Court by courier have not been affected by the postal service closure.
U.S. Tax Court Chief Judge Thomas B. Wells announced yesterday that legible U.S. postmarks on mail items will suffice as evidence of timely filing, even if the items are received after a deadline date.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
