After watching a video on rising taxes, I realized how complicated the tax system really is. The tax code is growing every year to the point that most people now bring in professional just to file their taxes. Federal politicians abuse the tax system to get things done. This act affects everybody not just intended targets. With increasing complexity, the money we pay is divided and less productive. Large corporations play a large part in whether a politician gets reelected, so that politician has no qualms about fitting in a loophole or two to benefit the company. The government has become very picky about what you have to report. Trading a favor for advice warrants a tax report. I think that the problem is that people who stand to make money are, while the benefits stop there.
