Despite an email from the State of California Board of Equalization stating that the Salton Community Services District needs to pay sales taxes on photocopy/incoming fax services, SCSD Directors Butler, Palmer, and Neal voted to evade paying the taxes by voting no on a resolution authored by Director James G. Barrett that would have instructed management to make the required tax payments.

You can read the email from the Board of Equalization and decide who's right by going to:

For the Forum's information:
The SCSD Board decided to send anyone wanting those services to the LOCAL Copy & Fax Center: Lilly's Mail just a block away from the District Office, thus giving a LOCAL Store that business.

You are one lying sloth Imari.

On what agenda was this "Board decision" to send photocopy/fax customers elsewhere?
It never happened. You're just trying to divert peoples attention away from the topic that Directors Neal, Butler, and Palmer voted to evade paying back sales taxes that the Board of Equalization says HAS to be paid.

Also, if the board did decide (which it never did) to stop the photocopy/fax service, then why is it still on the recently approved budget as income to the district to the tune of almost $1,000 for FY2008-2009?

You never have ANY actual documents or evidence to back up ANY of your allegations.

You just make up lie after lie after lie

It is obvious that you do not believe in the rule of law. You couldn't even keep the covenants of your own religion back in Cleveland Ohio. So much so that your own kind ran you out of town.

Jimmy Jmmy Jimmy

LOL
You can't even practice your own religon, so please don't pretend to understand mine.

I have the recording of the Board meeting, and I have listened to it.

Thats where my facts are comming from, your spoken word, BB&K's spoken words and those of the other Director's... know go ahead and tell me that I've altered the digital recording I have.

I think what you dislike about me Jimbo, is I'm not afraid of you in the least. You're a small minded Bigot, with delusions of grandure. You're also a mental case, and have anger management issues. You've come very close to being tossed in jail by the ICSD because of anger, delusions when it comes to your position of the SCSD Board.

Your not in control here Jimmy, your part of the cog, as soon as you get that through your thick skull, the quicker you may find allies.

But I'm wagering $$$ you can't do it.

I've dealt with people like you all of my life. What you're afraid of you attack, what you want to control you destroy, and what you can't have you whine like the child thats so spoiled that thinks if he screams loud enough he may, just maybe get his way...

YOU will not get your way.

Now, go stand in the corner and grow up.
Should I bring your a diaper and a bottle so you can fully start acting your AGE.

Question --
Was the e-mail to the District in answer to a general question posed to them, or was it a direct e-mail to the District demanding them to comply?
In past business experience, anytime a business is directed to comply with state laws they are notified in writing by US Mail (not via e-mail)!
Have there been subsequent requests to comply? Once the state decides you are responsible for paying 'anything' you don't just get off by a vote of the ruling majority of the local Board!
My bet is that this was a genereal question answered by the state and then carried to the extreme by one Director.

The District has always supplied copy and fax services to the general public because that is what they are -- a SERVICES Distrcit (paid for by the public); and there was no other facility in the area that provided the same service.
Most of the time, I would bet, at much below the cost of materials, machinery and employee cost.
The state requires taxes be paid on profit-making ventures; not service oriented offices. The District is not a 'for profit' business office. It is a public service office!
Go after the BIG BUCKS Mr. Barrett; and, more importantly STOP SPENDING THEM!

Director Barrett posed his Complaint(question) via the BOE's website

Comments: For years the Salton Community Services District in Imperial County has been making photocopies and sending faxes as a service to the general public. The faxes and photocopies are of a personal nature and are not related to district business.

The district charges fees for these services, and as far as I could find out, as a Director on the districts Board of Directors, the district is not charging or submitting any sales taxes on these transactions.

Up until just recently there has been no commercial enterprise in the area that provides these services. Now that a post office etc. type of business has just opened up a block from the district office, there is no bonafide need for the district to provide this service anymore.

The previous paragraph aside, I believe the district should have been paying the BOE sales tax on the faxes and photocopies and should continue to do so if they continue the service.

Am I correct? During my research of the issue on your website and elsewhere on the web I have found no exemption that would allow the district to provide this service tax exempt.

As a district we count on people paying their taxes due to us just like the State relies on its' duly owed taxes and fees also. It is what it is. My phone is 7 6 0- 5 7 4-9 6 6 9 and any insight into this matter would be of great help to me as a director and also as a citizen. We all need to pay the taxes that the law says we have to pay. If the district needs to establish policy in order to conform with tax code then I'd certainly draft the legislation and place it on the next
monthly agenda.

Thank you for your time, James G. Barrett

The districts office number is 7 6 0-3 9 4-4 4 4 6.

Thanks again.

So it's not even tax evasion, BUT Director Barrett has posted this "TAX EVADERS:Butler, Neal, Palmer Directors Vote to Deprive State of Required Sales Tax Payments by J. F. McGuire" -story on his website, when he goes out in public he posts it on the Community Boards, and then posts it here on Topix.
He doesn't even have the balls to post under his "real" name. but then again he'd be in big trouble if he does and Director Barrett knows that.

The SCSD replyed to Director Barret with a letter stating that they were exempt and didn't have to have a sales permit, or collect taxes on that.

Director Barrett didn't want to hear this, so he continues spending the public's moneies on chasing windmills.

Director Barrett then fired off another email to all the other SCSD Directors and the SCSD

Below is an email I sent to the State Board of Equalization and there response to it.

I also ran into David Erskine at the market and told him Id give him a copy also for his records. He informed me that the district is also selling maps. Im sure sales tax laws apply to those sales also.

I brought this issue up during the Boards first budget meeting but nobody seemed to think it was an important matter. Im sure the BOE would think otherwise.

Good Day,
James G. Barrett

I hope this gives some insight into what Director Barrett's Method of operation is when it comes to our Community... or at least into the mind of the raving village idiot.

Director Barrett yet again has been reported to Topix for his previous attacks, and since he even demonstrated how he has done these along with past attacks, Topix was very greatful.

Again if you read a post that you find offensive you can click on the "report abuse" button and it will be reviewed by Topix Staff.

Again if you find a post that is an attack, remember that the party might just be doing it to get a rise out of you, because they have nothing better to do with their life, or their out of work.

These posts have all been juvenile, sick and sad and demonstrates the nature of a bully. Some people never get out of there role from junior high school. Some people carry it over to their Adult life and use it daily to get things there way, or clear their way to getting what they want.

These tatics are so old.

Director Barrett used to be an Editor on this page, when he continued to attrack the online Community here, the scsd. and do harrasment of a personal nature he was removed.

It took all of us to get that done, and I wanted to personally thank those that helped, because this Board if he had been allowed to continue would have been so full of hate and bigotry.

Now Director Barrett has reared his ugliness yet again, under various peoples nicknames and that of "the daily whatever".

The Topix Board needs to understand that what Director Barrett is doing here to our online Community is what he has done and is doing in the real SCSD Community.

The question then is are we going to wait a little less then a year for Jimmy to get voted out of office or are we as a Community going to take that first step to remove this bully from the playground.

Enough said, I have work to do, and I've wasted way to much time on Director Barrett today.
