Yeah, I saw this movie called the big short about the '08 recession.. and I just acquiesced the fact that people have deliberately Twisted stuff so others get missed out. Took me a lot of time to understand stuff

Filing a tax return online in the US. Or even filing a tax return at all, online or not.

May I ask, is everyone meant to file a tax return in the US. I ask because most people here don't need to. Your tax assessment comes, you check it and mostly it's 99.9% accurate anyway, then you just ignore it because the tax was taken accurately at source. It's very much a no stress situation. That said, if you're running a business sure you got to do a return or two and its a hassle.

Except for those earning less than a (very small) threshold, and a few other exceptions, most adults in the US are in fact required to file a tax return. And yes, it is as ridiculous as it sounds, as for most middle class Americans the government already has all the numbers it needs to calculate your tax return. The reason it is this way is because of lobbying by companies that provide tax consulting and filing services.


BulgarianSheepFeta

Interesting. Here it is optional for most anyone who is employed no matter how much you earn. But you are meant to if you have other income. For example I knew a guy who used to deal drugs. He used to declare the proceeds as "other income". Didn't worry about the legality of drug dealing, just didn't want the IRD on his arse.
