Lane Powell Shareholder Scott Edwards was quoted in a November 24 Washington State Wire article titled “About That Audit: Business, Tax Collectors Talk Ideas for Resolving Appeals Issues.” ​The article discussed the Department of Revenue’s internal appeal system including basic questions regarding the system’s transparency, such as the department’s failure to publish most of its administrative appeals determinations and its development of an internal advise tracking system that is not publicly available. Edwards spoke in favor of reforms to the state’s taxpayer bill of rights at a recent hearing before the state Senate Trade and Economic Development Committee.
