<i My political statement for the week goes like this. "I beleive that each and every congressman, congress woman and Senator, should be required to do his or her tax forms personally and in session." They shold be given the IRS forms a pen and a calculator and left in session until all of them are completed and submitted. I think that that is the only way to get the code simplified. /i>

Not only do I agree, I have written the same sentiment to my senators and representative each year following tax season. Plus, I ask my state representatives to simplify the state tax, preferably by making it a percentage of federal.

Obviously, our representatives do not listen.

But, it's pretty much our responsibility to make our views known. And I pass this message on to my TCE clients who complain about taxes; don't just complain, take your complaints to your representatives!
