UP DAWSON’S CREEK

In Uncategorized on 10/12/2020 at 15:52

I didn’t blog the Genius Baristas’ shutdown of USTC from November 20 through December 28, because I thought the blogosphere and the trade press would be all over the month-plus USTC offline, due to the installation of DAWSON (“Docket Access Within a Secure Online Network”).

Crickets.

As usual, the trade press and the blogosphere care little for pore l’il ole Tax Court, the “small court,” or its “dissions.”

But the October 7 press release contains one sentence that froze the electrons in my laptop.

“The Court does not anticipate issuing any orders or opinions during the time e-filing is inaccessible.”

Are y’all serious? Nothing for a month, with thousands of taxpayers and the IRS waiting on resolution of their cases, each of which is important to the parties involved, whether it be $10 or $10 million caught in this logjam up Dawson’s Creek without a paddle or a log Peavy.

I do not even consider mentioning that this shuts me down for a month, or however long it takes to get this latest coruscation up and running.

Given the schemozzle that occurred when the jazzy new homepage was unleashed in July, I can just see what December 28 will bring us, when the Genius Baristas push the “ENTER” key. “Shambolic” isn’t even close.

See my blogpost “If It Ain’t Broke, Don’t Fix It,” 7/20/20.
