Congress Is About to Ban the Government From Offering Free Online Tax Filing. Thank TurboTax. — ProPublica
Your regular reminder that lobbying by tax-preparation agencies has ensured that US taxation is an overcomplex mess which requires you pay a third party to operate:
Intuit and H&R Block last year poured a combined $6.6 million into lobbying related to the IRS filing deal and other issues. Neal, who became Ways and Means chair this year after Democrats took control of the House, received $16,000 in contributions from Intuit and H&R Block in the last two election cycles.
