    In the end, doesn't this make the argument for a less complicated system of taxation?

    both my state & local tax returns are flat taxed & it takes all of 5 minutes to fill out the form.....why the IRS insists upon this nightmare is beyond all rational thought.....

    A flat tax you say? Simple you say? Just a standard deduction and exemptions for the members of your family? That would not be a good thing on the federal level. Just think of all the accountants and attorneys who would be out of work.
