Are you finding taxes hard to understand?

The TaxProf reports IRS Commissioner Does Not Do His Own Taxes Because of Complexity of Code:

During an interview on C-SPAN's "Newsmakers" on Sunday, IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman said he uses a tax preparer for his own returns:
"I've used one for years. I find it convenient. I find the tax code complex so I use a preparer."


Stop and think about who is saying this. He isn't an average joe. He is the guy in charge of the IRS. And he finds the tax code too complex!

I would love to have a law that required every Congressman to do their own taxes. Maybe they would rein in the IRS a bit.
