Since our new president was elected on the notion of change, lets talk about changing the most absurd government policy of all. Why do individuals need to pay money to private companies in order to file our taxes online? Its absurd that a multi-billion dollar industry exists for no good reason.
The IRS should be doing everything possible to make the payment of taxes easy and free. Every year I pay around $40 to file my federal and state taxes online. Why doesn’t the government have a free site that is comparable to Turbotax online?
Maybe if it was easier to pay taxes, our politicians wouldn’t have so much trouble paying them..
