Tax Guru – Ker$tetter Letter

Helping real people win the tax game.

Geographic Illiteracy

Posted by taxguru on July 31, 2003

Since moving to Arkansas ten years ago, it’s been amusing to see how many people and media outlets are unaware of the postal abbreviation for this state of AR. I have even seen normally accurate outlets, such as the Wall Street Journal, use AK and AZ to signify Arkansas. We were watching some TV show a few weeks ago and one of the guests was shown as being from Little Rock, AK. As far as I know, Alaska doesn’t have a city named Little Rock.

Back in early June, I gave an interview to a reporter from MyBusiness Magazine about my blog. I didn’t think to point out that I am in Arkansas, so she attributed me as being in Harrison, Arizona.
