Report: ‘New Louisiana Department of Revenue unit will help taxpayers resolve disputes over audits’

Sunday’s Times-Picayune contained an excellent report about LDR’s Audit Protest Bureau:

The Louisiana Department of Revenue has established an independent unit that will work with taxpayers to resolve disputes over audits.

The Audit Protest Bureau was set up to give taxpayers who are in the early stages of disputing an audit an impartial means of resolution and an alternative to the court system. The bureau, which is managed by tax experts who are professionally trained in dispute resolution, reports directly to the secretary of Revenue.

“This is a more efficient way to do business,” Earl Millet Jr., deputy secretary of revenue, told a group of accountants meeting in Kenner this week. “This will save taxpayers from going to court.”
