Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Once again, city-bred farmer Oliver Douglas (Eddie Albert) decides to stand firm on his principles -- only to fall flat on his face. Upon receiving a tax notice that makes absolutely no sense to him, Oliver vows not to pay the bill until someone explains just what he's paying for. Unfortunately, the only person who might have a logical explanation is Oliver's assemblyman -- who, per the episode's title, is nowhere to be found. Watch for It's a Wonderful Life supporting actress Mary Treen as a laconic telephone operator.
