    House folds on playing "Shutdown Card", CIA tortured in hearings and more.....

    in Politics Conservative

    Like players holding a hand of cards in a championship poker game in Las Vegas, the GOP led House folded instead of betting it all for a possible big win. Tuesday, the House pushed through a paired down Spending Bill that will allow $1.1 Trillion to be spent to keep government operations running through September 2015.


    The only exception to the spending extention, Department of Homeland Security. This sets the stage for the "Battle Against Amnesty Showdown" when the newbies arrive in Washington DC.


    Talking about torture, did you see what happened to the CIA in the "Torture Hearings"? 


    South Carolina State Representative Kris Crawford surprises everyone by resigning his seat at the table. After winning the November 4th election (without an opponent) Crawford leaves the State Capitol leaving everyone with questions. Expect a herd of GOP folks to enter the Special Election to replace Crawford.


    Jump "In the Pickle Barrel" at 8AM-10AM EST as we discuss these issues and others.

    IDOR Administrative Hearings

    in Legal

    In recent years, it seems that the Illinois Department of Revenue has significantly increased its collection efforts against taxpayers. One way it has done this is by initiating more audits, which usually relate to income, sales, or employment taxes. Many times as a result of these examinations, IDOR will propose significant adjustments against taxpayers that may result in substantial tax liabilities. If the taxpayers are not able to come to an acceptable resolution with their auditors, their only choice may be to contest the auditors’ findings through an administrative hearing. Because these hearings involve complex legal procedures, it is imperative that taxpayers have adequate legal representation to protect and preserve their rights and to advocate on their behalves.  This Podcast with Josh Nesser of Lavelle Law will explore IDOR Hearings and offer clarity on their purpose.
