And you'd be astounded how many people can't do 4th grade arithmetic. I used to teach tax law to college grads, and it was hard enough to get them to look up the right number in the tables.I would not be astounded at all. Though many people consider me a cynic, I call myself a cautious pessimist. But it is not only college grads who cannot be taught to understand tax law or file their own tax return. It is my suspicion that those so mentally incapacitated that they cannot get a real job must get elected to public office to support themselves. Not only can they not understand the tax law, they write the tax law. Is it any wonder that things are the way they are?
