Here is a thing about the IRS: it is a completely unneeded agency. Taxes can be levied and collected at the point of transaction with such ease that
there is no reason for the annual rigamarole. The only reason the IRS stays in existence is if taxes were collected at the point of transaction, all
loopholes would shut.
Of course, having a "credit" system would fix that, as your tax status could be inlaid in your card. Convenient, of course.
All that other stuff aside, however....the abuses of the IRS are wholly needless. To understand how to pay your taxes requires you pony up a wad of
cash to become a tax accountant. That isn't the common sense, accessible system that was founded in this nation. It is purposefully confusing and
morosely complex. As a denizen of the US, my first complaint is with the IRS and the way we are taxed. Take my money, but don't make me run through
a maze before I can give it to you.
ETA: matter of fact, I would go one further. I would say that no matter what, I would vote for the candidate that would get rid of the IRS and
replace it with a transaction tax of some sort that yields roughly the same results. Handle the non profits via tax credit forms where they are
reimbursed monthly or something if need be. I bet it could be made even easier than that, though.
I would even be willing to fist fight a bear 1 time a week for the rest of my life if it meant saving humanity from the IRS.
