Well, that day has come and I finally buckled down and filed. I use Turbo Tax, and as it has for several years, it enabled me to get this painful exercise over with the minimum of fuss.
Now, while I don’t completely disapprove of taxes, I believe that a tax on income is just wrong. I will not go into all the reasons I believe this, at least not in this post, but I would prefer a consumption tax. Or, if that were not possible (and why not?), then there should be a very simple flat rate tax that applies to everyone. And I mean everyone who earns a buck. No deductions.
