The year 2017 is accelerating to its end and, as usual, I’ve spent a good part of the year looking at everything through the thought-bending prism known as state and local taxes. Hence the reason for my thoughts to turn paranoiac while hearing one of my favorite songs from the band Spoon. I can guarantee that upon hearing “Knock, Knock, Knock” most others would not have the image in their mind of the state taxing authorities knocking on the front door of your home or business with their hand out.
Fortunately, I’ve been assured everything is ok, since paranoia is characterized by delusions of persecution. And based on what has been happening in the world of state and local taxes, there have been no delusions.
