ACM Attorney Mary Magnuson has reviewed the proposed changes.
DOR has recently published proposed rules governing the annual audits. The proposal appears to be a much needed update to the rules to incorporate the statutory changes that have occurred over the past several years. As a result, DOR has asked for an exemption from the usual rulemaking process under the “good cause” exemption. The good cause exemption applies to rule changes that merely reflect changes in the statutes where no interpretation by the department is necessary. Comments must be received not later than 4:30 pm on November 2, 2020. You can access the proposed rules as well as the Findings and Supporting Reasons statement at: https://lnks.gd/l/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiJ9.eyJidWxsZXRpbl9saW5rX2lkIjoxMDIsInVyaSI6ImJwMjpjbGljayIsImJ1bGxldGluX2lkIjoiMjAyMDEwMjYuMjkzNzU4OTEiLCJ1cmwiOiJodHRwczovL2NvbnRlbnQuZ292ZGVsaXZlcnkuY29tL2F0dGFjaG1lbnRzL01OUkVWLzIwMjAvMTAvMjIvZmlsZV9hdHRhY2htZW50cy8xNTc2OTQwL05vdGljZSUyMG9mJTIwU3VibWlzc2lvbiUyMC0lMjBNaW5uLiUyMFIuJTIwODEyMiUyMCUyOHdpdGglMjBleGhpYml0cyUyOS5wZGYifQ.zJ-aWvxE1XkIucaoU42lBNfjqrKzQYiSqaiwX_AmhqU/s/109486324/br/87394268161-l
