Statement of Claim
Claimant says:
"Jamie Nicolelli came into my sales booth sunday morning and handed my booth person a threatening letter with false tax numbers on it, stating that she would start legal proceedings if this amount was not paid by the deadline the next week. I am up to date on my taxes.
Jim Paradise owner of Colorado Renaissance Festival is threatening to not renew my contract he offered me last week before this started for next year because I did not pay the tax person false amounts. They are in conspiracy to defraud his crafts businesses at his fair, CRF.. His office gal Darla Smith just wrote me a threatening email, defaming my business which they have accepted there for over 15 years. They have refused to accept my fees for next year contract they offered me last week, twice, stating I wrote a "nasty" letter of complaint online. This implies he and CRF are complicit and in collusion with this tax agent to extort money through fraudulent and extortionate tax procedures. I believe they are trying to copy their collusive arrangement they have with the City of Larkspur, CO, to exchange information and collect exorbitant tax amount of 4% every week of the 8 week show."

Additional Communication Between Claimant and Jamie Nicolelli Tax Agent For Colorado Sales Tax Revenue Department Hide
  • Aug 23, 2019, Claiming party added:
  • Because of this tax agent's threatening letter of July 28, 2019 she delivered by hand to my booth gal the management at Colorado Ren Fest has refused my payment for next year's contract they already offered me and my booth gal thinks I am a delinquent tax-payer, which I am not, and she is threatening to quit. This is defamation and abuse. I am suffering personally because of Jamie Nicolelli's lies on that letter using faked tax-due numbers, and will suffer financially for years to come if the 2020 CRF contract is not honored.

  • Aug 23, 2019, Claiming party added:
  • In her threatening letter of July 28, 2019 , she says we must pay delinquent taxes next week or they will start "legal proceedings" and it states some big numbers, which are a lie, as she says in a later email when I asked, she "cant know my sales"... so I sent them a check with a form for LAST MONTH'S taxes, and they returned it this last Monday (Aug 19, 2019) with some forms that do NOT have ANY TAX RATES ON THERE. NOT stating tax rates is unusual and irresponsible. they insist on us using the new forms and yet there is NO TAX RATE on there? Their online filing system does not recognize my SSN.

  • Aug 23, 2019, Claiming party added:
  • This letter Jamie Nicolelli (JN) handed to my booth gal is offensive even if I was a delinquent tax payer, which I am not. "Defamation" is to injure a party's good reputation with smearing or false information. My booth gal said this was "Mob-like treatment" and the interaction with the tax agent " 10minutes before opening! That left me shaky but I made a good day anyway ". Then after Jim Paradise refused our payments for 2020 contract, my booth gal said Jim told her "the office wont accept payment until he talks to m you (me) personally because my complaint letter sounded "nasty" " Well, Complaints usually sound that way... especially after a letter like that. Then my booth gal wrote: "Jim probably wants to make sure I pay my taxes on time from now on." Proof of Defamy. Because she believes me now to be a delinquent tax payer.

  • Aug 25, 2019, Claiming party added:
  • Read her letter to me/us. It is mean and aggressive, it is terrifying. If tax agents are allowed to speak in such an awful manner to the people who conduct business in their state and PAY THEIR WAGES, why would anyone want to do business in that state? I left New York for this reason: they tried to extort $4000 of taxes I DID NOT OWE.

  • Aug 28, 2019, Claiming party added:
  • I just recvd 8-27, 2019 another letter from CDoR saying I havent paid 7-18 tax, when I have sent them copies of statement and cancelled check for year 2018 paid on 1-21-19, which is when their forms say its due. I think this is a case of their office being totally screwed up and not knowing what the other hand is doing. That she has to resort to being nasty and spreading bad mean information around shows she is NEW. These are states that are going digital with their sales tax and revenue. I have experience with 20 states and filing sales taxes there 40 yr period. and they ALL go thru these growing pains. they target crafts/art sales because they are paranoid and think we are hoarding cash and not paying taxes on it, and they get themselves worked up into a tizzy about. these days almost everything is digital anyway; we ALL have card machines and its 90% charges every weekend. If they want to find cash, they should look at the owners of these shows who take ONLY cash at their concession stands, and we are talking 10K at each stand each week end. They should stop their harassment of craftspersons. Arizona, NewYork, Carolinas, Michigan, Texas nothing as mean as Jamie Nocile

  • Here is the horrible letter she passed around my booth at the faire in my absence...

  • Jan 04, 2020, Claiming party added:
  • She/they sent me a bill in the mail last week in Dec for taxes I do NOT owe because they think I did not file taxes in 2019. I did, some of it on the wrong month but I am not paying more to cover their lack of understanding. they have lost all my filings and have requested repeatedly more and more filings because I dont pay enough for them. so they made up some numbers, mailed the bill to me, and that is a federal offense, 20 years for each false bill sent in the mail. they have rescinded my tax license and Jim Paradise of colorado Ren Fest has rejected my contract for next year, so I am out of a job for June and July so I am pursuing other work venues. I dont want this solved; I want them to get jail time. The damage to my life is done.
