No, the IRS should switch to a system of auto-completion of tax forms similar to other countries where the onus of completion falls on the IRS rather than the individual.

@B4JBQG3Green from Texas answered…1wk

Filing taxes should be an automated process. The IRS already has all the necessary information.

Yes, tax preparation industries are one of the biggest examples of corrupt lobbying.

@9HSX7STGreen from Virginia answered…2yrs

No, it should manage your taxes as other countries do. They have the information already, as they know when you fill the forms out wrong.

@9HQYXQYVeteran from Arizona answered…2yrs

No, but I would suggest that we remove the IRS from existence as it was created to fund WWII. We should go back to the per-war tax strategy.

@9HNR55RIndependent from New York answered…2yrs

Yes, but existing tax filing services should still be kept for those who want them.

@Chelli-TimbieVeteran from Illinois answered…2yrs

No, the IRS is an unconstitutional agency and should be removed.

Yes but only if they keep spending under control while creating the system. Free options already exist so it's not crucial.

Yes, I never understood why I can only file taxes through third parties.

@9H6P9KPSocialist from Ohio answered…2yrs

Yes, and income tax should be drastically reduced for low income citizens and raised for the wealthiest citizens

@9H5JGSMVeteran from New York answered…2yrs

Yes, but institute a flat tax system with no deductions and no loopholes.

@9H57J6CVeteran from Utah answered…2yrs

A flat tax would make it more fair and reduce the need to file taxes with the exception of the self employed.

@9H4X266Communist from Pennsylvania answered…2yrs

The economy should be nationalized and all forms of taxation rendered obsolete.

@9H4R539Veteran from Arizona answered…2yrs

I am for a flat tax, no loopholes, limited tax credits and deductions for all

I feel that I do not know enough about this topic to contribute an answer.

@9GXX4GWGreen from North Carolina answered…2yrs

The govt. shouldn't force citizens to figure out their own taxes, and instead should just do our taxes for us since they already know how much we owe in the first place. Plenty of other countries do their citizens' taxes for them, and are way less complicated than the system in the U.S.

Yes, but abolish private tax preparation and the IRS should handle all tax filings.

@9GP6SJLVeteran from New Jersey answered…2yrs

@9GNB4DYVeteran from Nebraska answered…2yrs

Completely abolish federal income tax, abolish the IRS, add a federal sales tax like a VAT to all purchases made by any person or entity without exception or exemption, and eliminate all federal funding of any kind to any state that collects income tax.

@9GLWBKMIndependent from Kansas answered…2yrs

Yes, but allow private tax companies to maintain as an alternative.

@9GKWJ24Socialist from Florida answered…2yrs

Yes, but I would prefer that the IRS calculate taxes owed instead of people filing their taxes, as some other countries do.

@9G3RK2DWomen’s Equality from Florida answered…2yrs

Maybe as long as there are other options still in place. Like people still have the option to use turbo tax or their accountant etc. Also how do I know that the IRS form wouldn’t charge me the maximum amount it could instead of trying to get me the most breaks.

@9FXTG7GVeteran from Washington answered…2yrs

No, We should implement a flat tax based on income earned for the year with whatever discounts applied to change your percentage at the start. Then it will auto deduct from your paycheck, and no more doing taxes each year.

@9FWLLQXConstitution from Utah answered…2yrs

@9FR6RY3Socialist from Texas answered…2yrs

Yes, and we should allocate more funding to the IRS because it needs to have the necessary resources to do its job efficiently, and that is very important, the problems that we loath the IRS for are caused by politicians campaigning against the IRS as an easy oblisk of bureaucracy that we all love to hate and passing legislation that prevents the IRS from getting enough resources and doing their job

@9FHHQ97Democrat from California answered…2yrs

Yes, but still allow private companies like Turbotax as an alternative to the IRS.

@9FGS638Green from Florida answered…2yrs

No, the IRS already knows how much we or they owe so they should just tell us and have us pay or receive our reimbursement. We should have the option to do our own taxes to challenge the calculations from the IRS.

@9F9YPRJRepublican from Illinois answered…2yrs

@9F8CYGYIndependent from Florida answered…2yrs

Yes, but have someone check to make sure no mistakes are made.

@9MNQ3RTWomen’s Equality from Minnesota answered…2yrs

No, I believe it’s more important to be helped by people, opposed to robots!

@9MKYFLCWomen’s Equality from Kansas answered…2yrs

No, but I would like the IRS to reduce current income taxes. I would also like/prefer that situations(that are confidential) in where the IRS takes away someone's property, the government should be double checking to make sure they're not conning anyone.

@9MB7GS2Working Family from Pennsylvania answered…2yrs

Saying no only because that would put many people out of jobs

@9M2DFLBWomen’s Equality from New York answered…2yrs

No, this would significantly damage accounting firms and certified tax preparer businesses
