It's time for a mass rebellion, and it's easy as pie, no standing outside the IRS protesting with signs or anything like that. I began my protest three years ago by sending in my return blank except for name, SS#, and my signature with W-2 obediently attached.
The IRS then is forced to retrieve all the other info they already possess, as the article points out, and they complete my return, including calculating my refund and sending it to me. Tax time is no longer the stressful ordeal it once was, not to mention forking over $200 to H&R Block.
The law requires us to file a return. It doesn't say it has to be filled out! What if everyone were to mail in uncompleted returns? Yes, I do have more than a simple return and I attach a Schedule D form, but the IRS still manages to complete it.
Do it, people!
