This is actually how it’s supposed to be, the IRS already KNOWS has done the math and they’re already know how much we owe, so why make it harder? They could already tell us, our information but, they don’t. They’re already doing this in Europe, and it’s so much faster.
That could be us. (Pun intended )
Again they ALREADY do the work they just don’t leave it on the forms for us, or share the information with us, that isn’t more work. Having to keep all those numbers together, for however long until the assumed household’s math matches up with yours... Every. Single. Year.
Leaving that information on the returns, for easy access, so things so by quicker isn’t more work, it’s less. They’re already doing the same amount of work.
(I’m not sure I’m explaining it right)
I can’t remember everything I want say, but I know there will be people who will skip, that skim, to YOU!! I say, please watch:
“Adam Ruins Taxes” (YouTube)
It is LITERALLY about this exact topic.
So um.. thank you Adam? If he ever sees this I guess?
