A Navy servicemember seeks pro bono assistance with a tax issue. The Sailor purchased a vehicle in Nevada before driving it to her duty station in Illinois. The Nevada car dealership charged her sales tax at the time of purchase, but then registered her car in Illinois. The Sailor has been receiving notices of tax delinquency from the Illinois Department of Revenue. She has responded with evidence of her payment of the sales tax, but continues to receive notices. She has tried to contact the Department of Revenue several times to no avail.
