So did I! As a matter of fact, on the advice of counsel a few decades ago, I sought a declaratory judgment on an issue. Got it from the head of the agency. The agency then sued claiming "the head of the agency had NO authority to bind the agency"! The judge agreed. I was SCAMMED millions of dollars by a top 3 law firm and the lawyers on my case were a former federal judge, a former agency director, and a former prosecutor.Good point. I assumed that seeking tax clarification from the agency would be a binding decision.
All these people are a CANCER on society!
