I’d never heard of the “ready return.” Can’t believe it hasn’t been a major issue yet for progressive and/or populist candidates on a national stage yet. 

Sucks that so-called conservative lawmakers secretly don’t want to make the tax filing process simpler because they actually like the psychological association between taxes and pain. Not the pain of actually paying them, mind you. Just the pain of the paperwork!
