Annual Public Hearing – Come give us your thoughts!!

May 28, 2013 – TaxTalk Blog

You are cordially invited to the Indiana Department of Revenue’s annual public hearing.

What’s in it for you? Well, for all those times you’ve had concerns about how the Department writes letters, sends billings, handles your refund, etc., etc., now is your chance to constructively tell us about it. You can share a compliment, too – if you like.

When and Where
June 4, 2013, at 9 a.m. (EDST)
Indiana Government Center South, Conference Room 18
402 W. Washington St.
Indianapolis, IN 46204 (get map)

But why hold an annual meeting? Two reasons:

  1. Back in 1989 the Indiana General Assembly passed the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights. Included within that law is a requirement for the Department of Revenue to hold an annual public hearing as part of an overall effort to be more responsive to the public’s questions and concerns.
  2. We want to do a better job, and to help us do that we need your input.

In fact, we’re continually looking for ways to get your input. For instance, the Department has established a email address for taxpayers to submit questions and concerns 24 hours a day, seven days a week (notice we post this address at the bottom of every blog). And you can always contact us on Facebook.

The annual meeting is a formal opportunity for your voice to be heard. But if driving to Indianapolis on a Tuesday morning to participate in the public hearing doesn’t work out with your schedule, please send your formal submission for the meeting to the address below:

Indiana Department of Revenue
Commissioner’s Office
100 N. Senate Ave.
Indianapolis, IN 46204

So, if you can, come join us on June 4. That said, please let us know about your questions and/or concerns. Many of the best ideas for improving how we do business have come directly from taxpayers. After all, you are the customer!
