Your client, Teresa, claimed a dependency exemption for her elderly father. Upon audit, the agent disallowed the dependency exemption. Teresa received a 30-day letter notifying her of the proposed additional tax liability of $1,050. Teresa is very upset by this assessment and tells you that she refuses to pay "another dime" and she wants to take this "all the way to the Supreme Court, if necessary." What advice should you give Teresa?
