JOE VINATIERI MEETS WITH NEW OFFICE OF TAX APPEALS (OTA)
Last week Joe Vinatieri had the honor of meeting many of the new Office of Tax Appeals (OTA) Administrative Law Judges in Sacramento. In conjunction with California Department of Tax and Fee Administration Appeals Bureau attorneys David Levine and Jeff Angeja, Joe co-presented a California sales and use tax training session to the new ALJ’s. The goal: to help educate the new ALJ’s with a balanced perspective from both the government’s and taxpayer’s viewpoints. Joe was impressed with the level of knowledge of the ALJ’s and the good questions that were asked. Come January 1, 2018, the date that the OTA commences jurisdiction, it will be a new day for state tax appeals in California.
