After a frustrating start to tax season, I’ve decided the IRS needs a simplified process for calculating deductions:

IRS EZ Deduction Finder

How perfect of a solution would this be? It meets President Bush’s goal of a simplified tax code, remains true to the IRS’s history of creating incredibly baffling instructions, and doesn’t change a thing for the majority of taxpayers!

You know how Staples advertises and sells an “Easy” button? I think the IRS (or at least TurboTax) should follow suit and send a “No!” button along with personal returns … at least I could have some fun as all my deductions are being taken away. 😉

    This is a much easier way for me not to get anything back from the IRS.

    Sounds like the Canadian system as well…

    No taxes is the best solution. Where are my fellow Anarchists?

    Blimey! The IRS sound just as obtuse as HM Revenue & Customs (Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs, also known as the Inland Revenue here in the UK). A year ago they sent me a letter telling me I may have paid too much tax then proceeded to lose all my details altogether only to leave a very curt voicemail two weeks ago bemoaning the fact that I hadn’t filled in my yearly tax return. Hey, I never got the damn thing and it’s a miracle they got through to me in the first place as they only had my old cell phone number and a very old address… I’m still waiting for the refund for year before last and last year – I earned too little and they took too much. But will they ever own up to it? The mystery continues. Same %@#$, different country.

    Well this what happens when the people are no longer in control of there governments was it out brute force,
    or was in out we did not know that lawyers like to add rules to cheat others at of money they got by working hard for.
    Ether way tax with out Representation is now are new U.S. there is no other way to look at. No one besides
    any one in governments is happy the way it is but till WE AS A PEOPLE STAND ON ARE FONDING FATHERS WORDS.Nothing and do mean Nothing well ever change.
    There is nothing wrong with a flat tax rate it treats as all Men and Women equal unlike this way of doing things.

    Not bad, but I prefer Neal Boortz’s Fair Tax which would eliminate the IRS altogether.
