I remember as a kid my dad telling me “life isn’t fair and the sooner you get over that fact the happier you’ll be”.  That used to really bug me!  Why isn’t life fair?  Why do I have to accept that?

We’ll it seems I work in an industry that isn’t always fair.  Why is it that a state like Kentucky can go back 4 years in an audit if they think there is a potential liability but a taxpayer can only go back 2 years if a savings opportunity exists?  And, why does that same state charge 5% interest on money that the taxpayer owes them and only pays 1% interest on money they owe the taxpayer?

I guess my dad was right.  It’s just not fair!
