Ugh, sometimes I think they make tax so complicated to figure out because they WANT you to screw up 馃槖

Exactly. They shouldn't need us to do taxes bc it's all their paperwork. Just another way to trip people up and make a quick buck off of them

@deadgerbil Or they want less employers and more employees? 馃
Funny that. There was a bit of a scandal awhile back that TurboTax was actually lobbying the IRS to keep filling taxes super complicated so people are motivated to buy software to do it for them.

Well, as a financial planner (of sorts), that's not really the case, but I can see why as an ordinary taxpayer you might feel that way. Certainly, the tax scheme can be simplified, but there are so many interests, many competing, that it would be nearly impossible to execute a truly simplified process.

That's indeed by design
That must be the case. Why else would you need to fill it out at all if they already know what you owe them?
@NerdyPotato Because it's their legal way of charging you more taxes by saying you screwed up and now you owe us more when you really don't, but they bank on you not pursuing it. Even if you do pursue it, you won't win. I know because I tried it. They doubled dipped, is what I call it, into my retirement. Come to find out this is common and because of a certain clause between your retirement and taxes there is nothing you can do about it. It would be too much to try an explain on here, LOL, 馃檪
Collection isn't good for the austerity program.
