The yearly ritual of submitting tax returns to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) may not be something most of us look forward to doing, but do we really want the federal government to do it for us?
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has proposed legislation that would require the IRS to offer you the convenience of doing your taxes for you. The actual billwould require the IRS to create programs that help taxpayers process and file their federal taxes for free. Sen. Warren says taxpayers spend, on average, 13 hours and about $200 for tax preparation services to file their tax returns. Of course, this is unnecessary (if not misleading), as there are plenty of free services available to most Americans.
Having the IRS take over the process of filing our tax returns is not an idea that will make America great again. Our tax system is based on the concept of voluntary compliance, and hollowing this out by replacing it with a government-run tax preparation system moves the IRS from a tax administration, collection, and enforcement agency on to giving “advice” to the people it’s taking money from -- a clear conflict of interest.
How long before such "advice" becomes mandatory?
Can American taxpayers trust the same government agency that wants as much of their money as possible to also decide which benefits and deductions they will receive? Even if such a system were convenient and free, would we really want it?
NO !! I don't TRUST the IRS to do anything. Plus when God forbid, the next far left wingers are voted into the White House, control of Congress and the senate. This would give the SOCIALIST LOONS too much power to SQUEEZE every last cent out of the people. Just look at the last eight years. The libernazi's SQUEEZED more money out of the country than ever before. But the still BLEW the national DEBT into SPACE !
i love how she proposes a bill for americans that involves taxes when she doesn't pay any
I hear advertising on the Radio all the time for tax preparation services who will do your 1040E for free. why have IRS do it for cost to tax payer?
how about a bill that proposes all elected officials show tax returns
roy, how about a bill demanding all FED employees PAY their darned taxes! There are thousands who have not paid their taxes that equate to millions...some are Congressmen..Charley Wrangle comes to mind.
IRS EMPLOYEES owe MILLIONS of dollars in back taxes, how about we COLLECT ALL OF THAT FIRST????
