    Congress is About To Ban the Government From Offering Free Online Tax Filing

    Just in time for Tax Day, the for-profit tax preparation industry is about to realize one of its long-sought goals. Congressional Democrats and Republicans are moving to permanently bar the IRS from creating a free electronic tax filing system.

    ProPublica reports:Last week, the House Ways and Means Committee, led by Rep. Richard Neal (D-Mass.), passed the Taxpayer First Act, a wide-ranging bill making several administrative changes to the IRS that is sponsored by Reps. John Lewis (D-Ga.) and Mike Kelly (R-Pa). In one of its provisions, the bill makes it illegal for the IRS to create its own online system of tax filing. Companies like Intuit, the maker of TurboTax, and H&R Block have lobbied for years to block the IRS from creating such a system. If the tax agency created its own program, which would be similar to programs other developed countries have, it would threaten the industry's profits.

    "This could be a disaster. It could be the final nail in the coffin of the idea of the IRS ever being able to create its own program," said Mandi Matlock, a tax attorney who does work for the National Consumer Law Center. Experts have long argued that the IRS has failed to make filing taxes as easy and cheap as it could be. In addition to a free system of online tax preparation and filing, the agency could provide people with pre-filled tax forms containing the salary data the agency already has, as ProPublica first reported on in 2013.

    "Companies like Intuit, the maker of TurboTax, and H&R Block have lobbied for years to block the IRS from creating such a system."

    Congressional s paid to satisfy BigDonor, not what's best for citizens / voters.

    BigDonor has privatized more and more of govt functions which should be free.

    iow, your silly voting charades don't ing count when it comes to laws, policies, rules and regs.

    Actually, Republicans in the US Senate could stop this from happening.

    ElNono knows the house is Democratic. Not everyone is a partisan hack who only highlights things that make his team or favored people look good
