Why does the government make filing so difficult? You would think with computers and everything online, it would be easier than ever. On the contrary, it seems that taxes are getting harder to figure out. But I guess it keeps a lot of people working; after all there is a whole season dedicated to taxes and tens of thousands of people ready to help you file your taxes.
A few years ago I started using a tax accountant, but these days I have a Corporate CPA, which adds another layer of complication. It is funny, my CPA sent me booklet of tax questions regarding my businesses. After filling everything out, it felt like I had done the taxes myself. At least I got them done early this year. I know that there are a lot of people who wait until the last minute, lucky for them they get an extra 3 days this year and don’t have to send them in until April 18.
I hope someday they will just come out with the flat tax so we don’t have to worry about filing anymore.
