State should clear up stiff tax penalty

Dear Editor,


Are you kidding? A 1-cent mistake can result in a $779 cost?

According to your article on July 5, a law-abiding tax-paying Georgia businessman is on the hook for this expense. He has gotten no response from the tax agency or the governor's office.

Incompetence and stupidity seem rampant in Washington, and this sounds like the IRS in action. But this is Georgia.

As a former resident of Illinois and familiar with bad government, I am surprised that this could occur here.

If the governor or tax commissioner does not throw this out by next weekend, shame on them both.
