Voice opinions about force reduction at Kaua‘i District Tax Office

This letter is to inform the residents of Kaua‘i that the Department of Taxation for the state of Hawai‘i has proposed a reorganization and reduction in force for the Kaua‘i District Tax Office as part of the solution to the budget cuts required for the state.

The proposal will eliminate the Office Audit and Field Audit sections and downsize the Collections section and Taxpayer Services sections, leaving a total of four employees to service you as residents. All communication with the eliminated sections will be directed to the O‘ahu District Office.

The employees of the Kaua‘i District Office are asking for the community’s support in voicing your opinions and concerns with Gov. David Ige, Sen. Ron Kouchi, and our district Reps., James Tokioka, Nadine Nakamura and Dee Morikawa, and state Director of Taxation Isaac Choy.

The employees of the Kaua‘i District Office would like to continue to serve the community of Kaua‘i, and we sincerely appreciate your support in this matter.

Thank you.

The employees of the Kaua‘i District State Tax Office

    It’s sadly ironic to see loyal government workers get thrown away by the very idiots that they vote for in every single election. Even so, the entire county building staff should have been emptied out years ago, and replaced by computerized kiosks that speak in 7 languages.

    No let the door hit you in the okole on the way out!

    The only thing worse than a tax agent is a lawyer.

    The downsize in economic activities has a lot to do with this. This is a problem when many are unemployed. When you have many youths politicians who think they are doing a job, when the job is paying no money. I’m for the business owner if they’re richer than the voting few public. A job loss due to the down sizing is expected. Politicians are jobless. Why should they get paid? I don’t know. Well if you got your paycheck, congrats. You are the few who care about making money. As for the others, at least you voted. But still unemployed. Some say “Guber”. He was a fun actor. But that is who that politician represent. Him. Awe…but you got your check. Good!
