    Government generates then sends you a W-2, or a 1099 but then you need to inform government about whats documented on those forms.

    Government is the most inefficient and dysfunctional entity in America.

    Attachment 55988


    Doing taxes in the U.S. is notoriously complicated and costly. And it gets even worse when there are delays and backlogs, making it especially hard to reach the Internal Revenue Service for assistance. But to me this raises an important question: Why should taxpayers have to navigate the tedious, costly tax filing system at all?

    The case for a simple return


    In 1985, President Ronald Reagan promised a return-free tax system in which half of all Americans would never fill out a tax return again. Under the framework, taxpayers with simple returns would automatically receive a refund or a letter detailing any tax owed. Taxpayers with more complicated returns would use the system in place today.

    In 2006, President Barack Obamas chief economist, Austan Goolsbee, suggested a simple return, in which taxpayers would receive already completed tax forms for their review or correction. Goolsbee estimated his system would save taxpayers more than US$2 billion a year in tax preparation fees.

    Why? So that conservatives can still sidestep the system as best they can, DUH. Make it automatic and a lot of the legal (and legal) "creativity" disappears.

    Conservatives are the only ones that "sidestep" the tax system?

    The verdict? Turns out Republicans have the bigger names—Jack Abramoff, Randy “Duke” Cunningham—but Democrats have the most tax scandals by a margin of 18 to 7.
