Happy Tax Day

A family member recently complained about the high cost to have her taxes prepared.

I said:

Well, taxes are complicated. If you want simpler taxes and a lower cost to prepare your tax return, vote for different people. Congress designs the tax code.

It was a rare occasion where this person didn’t have a comeback and, judging by the look on her face, hadn’t considered that connection before.

That reminds me of something else I read in the last couple days, but can’t remember where: We should move election day closer to tax filing day. We might see different results.
