Editor's Note
Here at AccountingWEB we're very excited that Melissa Etheridge is staging a tax protest resulting from the passage of the controversial Proposition 8 in California. Any time people talk about taxes is good news for accountants, and this is no exception. If voters drew a stronger connection between their elected officials and the results on the bottom line of their tax return, the elections would be perceived on a more personal level and voters would realize that their votes really do impact their lives.
