Taxes

Post by Mori Chu »

I hate taxes. To me the dumbest part is that the IRS already knows exactly how much you owe, but you have to recalculate it anyway, because ... reasons?

I hate tax time too. I am a musician, which means I get to itemize everything. I am supposed to keep a log of every mile I drive for every gig. The whole thing is a pain in the ass and I dread it every year. I curse you for even mentioning it mori. 😎

Heh, that's pretty funny. I never thought of it like that. If they know what we owe, just tell us!

My take is, they should just send us our known taxes according to their data, and then we can submit any corrections such as charitable donations they don't know about. That makes way more sense to me.

And I don't think I'm asking anybody to do a bunch more work here. All of this would presumably run through some giant computer algorithm and require minimal human intervention. They ALREADY DO THIS work anyway to check / confirm the correctness of people's taxes! No additional work is being done here!
