TiNY Report for Cases Posted by the DTA on August 17, 2023
NY state flag and the word TAXES made out of money

There were four ALJ determinations posted on August 17, 2023.  All were pre-hearing process determinations. How does one make interesting the analysis of three process dismissals and a timy dismissal?  Try writing them up as haiku!  For those unfamiliar with the format, haiku are brief poems in three lines and seventeen syllables.  The first and third lines of a haiku are five syllables, and the middle line is seven syllables.  They are intended to express, in elegant brevity, the essence of something the writer observed.  History will, no doubt, judge me harshly for attempting to apply the haiku structure to TiNY case summaries.
