Upset with no reciprocity
Dear Editor, The end of reciprocity between Wisconsin and Minnesota. Great! That means doing two state income tax returns for many clients; that means higher billings and more revenue. Dear Client: everything I have told you for the past 40 years about reciprocity - forget it! So...
