    Advice to Management

    A lot needs to be worked on and improved. Appropriate processes should be put in place for training in tax team. The work gone for review comes with points such as, "select box 12 not 15", but no explanation as to why. Unfortunately, the focus is primarily on the speed at which a task is done, rather than quality. Asking managers for help is usually followed by "just do the best you can, as quickly as you can". Asking co-workers gets you responses like "just select box 24, it'll come back with review points anyways". No one seems to know what they are doing apparently,
