GIVING THE GOVERNMENT THE JOB OF PREPARING EVERYONE’S TAX RETURNS ISN’T MY IDEA OF TAX SIMPLIFICATION
Another installment in the “I have said this before” category: turning tax return preparation over to the government is not tax simplification.
Another equally unavailing argument now being advanced is that turning tax return preparation over to the government is a way to stick it to those greedheads at Intuit (the maker of Turbo Tax) and H&R Block.
All turning tax return preparation over to the government will do is make the tax system even more opaque and less responsive to citizen influence. Much like tax withholding did.
