This is Penny Lane. Penny is a five-month-old Shichon (Shih Tzu and Bichon Frise mix) that denies any association with Tyler Henderson of the State and Local Tax Team at Amazon. She would like readers to know that if you see her name and think she is named after the song by the Beatles, you’re probably a Baby Boomer. If you think she is named after the character from the movie Almost Famous, you’re likely a Millennial. For the sake of avoiding ongoing generational frictions, Penny refuses to reveal the true provenance of her name, preferring instead to acknowledge that she loves both the song and the movie.
Penny is currently working from home and greatly misses her friends at work, both human and fur. While at home, Penny is engaging in her favorite pastimes, which include chewing up furniture and destroying any pair of shoes accidentally left on the floor. Since she is spending so much time at home and getting bored in her time away from her friends at the office, she can typically be found either lounging in her bed or finding new and creative ways to fall asleep on the job.
After days of naps and boredom in her first week of working from home, Penny was so anxious to see her friends again that she considered returning to the office.
However, she quickly realized that even if she went back to the office, her friends still weren’t going to be there, and has since embraced the fact that this work from home thing could last a while. She has therefore resumed her workday activities, her favorite of which is obviously reading tax alerts from Eversheds Sutherland.
Penny opposes Maryland’s proposal to tax digital advertising and believes that the bill as drafted represents a violation of the Internet Tax Freedom Act and the Commerce Clause!
