u.s. congress actively making it harder to file taxes

this is a fun article. u.s. congress is trying to make it illegal for the IRS to provide software that competes with commercial tax prep software. the article sites chile as one of the countries where the tax authority provides precalculated tax filing.

Americans are always shocked, and even downright confused, when i tell them my wife typically does our chilean taxes in about 5 minutes, and 3 of those are dedicated to how to spend the refund (which from my perspective is often the same as not getting one). :lol:
