Every three years I have to endure a sales tax audit from the State of Florida. This year they actually sent me well in advance a list of all the paperwork they needed. I sent everything to them electronically weeks ago. So why do they have their auditor fly to Phoenix, stay in a hotel, and do her analysis of this paperwork on her laptop in my office? In the hour since she has been here she has not asked me for one thing. It is just bizarre. Given that I have been audited by them twice in the past and never owed more than forty or fifty bucks in back taxes from computation errors, I am pretty sure her flight cost way more than the expected value of her trip, particularly since she had done nothing so far she could not have done (better probably) in her own office.
