Revenue Enhancement

This week's question of the weekend concerns the Tennessee Department of Revenue's new mandate to business owners in this State that they must file their business sales tax paperwork online:

The Examiner contacted three Tennessee legislators this week-Stacey Campfield, Frank Niceley, and Tony Shipley. None of the aforementioned members of the Tennessee House of Representatives could recall any legislation passed this past session which gave the Tennessee Department of Revenue the authority to FORCE business owners to file sales taxes online.

Fortunately, or unfortunately, each of the legislators you mention are idiots. Like you, they have no understanding of how our state government works. Each department is allowed to promulgate its own regulations. For example, the Department of Revenue can create a rule that says that sales tax revenues are to be paid over the internet once the taxpayer's average tax threshold meets a minimum threshold.

If you, or the gay Rep, or Philandering Phrank would take a look, you'd see that a lot of things that the state does are not covered by a specific law. When you go get a driver's license, you'll find that there is no "law" covering how you get that license - there is simply a directive to the Department of Safety telling them to issue licenses and giving them the authority to make rules on how it's done.

Now, wasn't that simple? You and Frank and the Rep now know 100% more than you knew before I helped you out here. You don't have to thank me, but you could just stop being such a stupid fuck for about 10 minutes - that would be thanks enough.
