Taxes, taxes, taxes. One thing is for sure you can’t run and hide from them. While most Americans pay their taxes, some more begrudgingly than others, most taxpayers wish they could pay less. What’s more, most taxpayers would also love to see some real change in the tax system instead of the constant back-and-forth rhetoric that continuously takes place between political candidates and lawmakers.
In fact, according to a recent survey from WalletHub the majority of Americans really just want to see some true reform when it comes to the nation’s tax code. According to the survey more than 75 percent of those who participated felt that the current tax code was either complex or extremely complex. By way of comparison, only 5.5 percent said that the tax code is simple or very simple.
The findings also suggested that there was a correlation between the age of the respondents and how complex they feel the tax code is. Specifically, the older the respondent the more complex he or she feels the tax code is. So what makes the tax code seem so complex? According to respondents one of the chief culprits is the amount of deductions available in the tax code. The majority of the participants preferred a tax code with fewer deductions.
There are many aspects to taxes and no doubt for the average taxpayer a much simpler code would be preferable. In any case, when it comes to high net worth taxpayers the tax code can be even more complicated. That’s why it’s a good idea to let GROCO take care of your taxes for you. Click here to contact us.
