I am a control freak. I hate problems, but what I hate even more - are problems that could have been avoided or problems caused by unintended consequences. Life is uncertain. Thus, it is important for us to embrace uncertainty if we are going to be happy on a daily basis. We must learn to let go. However, in regards to state taxes, embracing uncertainty can cause unintended consequences and problems that could have been avoided. Consequently, we need to be a control freak when it comes to state taxes. We must use our power for good.
If you are going to the Paul J. Hartman State and Local Tax Forum in Nashville on October 25-27, 2016, please comment or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to meet you and talk shop.
