Is anyone not offended by the complexity of tax forms?
The tax code is Congress’ fault. Congress is our fault. Therefore the tax code is our fault. We should all choose to elect a congress to fix it, but in the meantime, here are some modest proposals.
- Congressmen must do their own taxes. On paper.
- All congressmen will be audited. Their mistakes get put on a web site.
- Tax law must be delivered in source code form
And yes, I was recently trying to figure out whether I owe any estimated taxes.
