Maybe the American people and our government will take this opportunity to overhaul the IRS in to a simple, powerless entity that merely collects a flat/fair tax. No deductions, no exemptions, no special treatment for anyone. Everyone simply pays the same rate. Tax rates could go down, government makes more money, IRS isn’t a threat anymore.
Americans should be perfectly OK with paying a fair/flat tax that has very little to no complexity – it is a small price to pay for living in the best country in the history of the entire world. Calculating taxes due should be a simple math function that a 5th grader should do: income * tax rate = taxes due. There’s no reason why it should be any more complicated than this.
Why do we insist on having such a laughably complex tax code? KISS. KEEP IT SIMPLE STUPID!
I think that if we overhaul the IRS in this way the economy would boom so much that the ex-IRS employees wouldn’t have any problems finding real jobs elsewhere.
