On this tax day we should talk about… taxes.
The tax code is so onerous, punitive, and labyrinthine that no normal of even highly educated person in business can do it. I have a Ph.D. and did a post-doc at Harvard, yet I wouldn’t dream of trying to do my own taxes. No way would I spend the time and effort to learn that stuff.
And for the Left, the complexity is a feature, not a bug.
If you run a small business, you must get an expert to do your taxes! The penalties are draconian. Just think, you get to pay someone (by the hour) to wade through the muck that is our tax code, and then you have to pay the taxes! The compliance costs may be quite significant. Even “normal” families spend hours on it.
Accountants and the government do NOT want a simple flat tax you can calculate in five minutes on a postcard! No, the complexity and draconian-ness is deliberate. Save us, Obi-Wan Trump, you’re our only hope!
