What A System!

Our State legislature meets for ninety-days every two years. During these this time, our elected representatives discuss weighty issues and make informed judgements on how Montana law is to treat these issues.

At least, that is the idea. As in most sessions, this legislature is significantly overhauling our tax code. Has anyone ever noticed that no tax accountants serve in the legislature?

No tax accountant could. To do so would mean giving up their practice, and the majority of their annual income, since the legislative session runs during an accountant's "tax season."

So, none of the people writing our tax law have beyond a passing familiarity with the operation of that law. What a system.
