SDRR: well, if the tax code wasnt such an intentionally farked up mess, they might not have such an image problem. for the vast majority of folks, the IRS could do their taxes for them. but that would hurt the cpas and tax software people

Which is funny, because it's congress that made the tax code such a mess. IRS can't change tax law, only enforce it.

It's fun to read the National Taxpayer Advocate's annual report to Congress:  http://www.taxpayeradvocate.irs.gov/Annual-Reports-To-Congress/Report s -To-Congress

DayeOfJustice: This seems like one of those times when people dislike something without knwoing why

Not me!! The IRSis so intrusive that they tried to coerce Canada into opening up their accounts so that the IRS could seize money if an American/Canadian citizen didn't file. The government refused. The IRS wanted to seize 25% of all property and charge a $10,000 penalty for every year not filed. This is extremely tricky for Americans who came here as kids and became Canadian citizens as kids.
we have an autistic child who came here as a four year old and is a Canadian/American citizen. She is technically supposed to file when she turns 18 even if she makes no money. it's a real looming headache for us.sorry for the bold. I couldn't turn the option off.

Prank Call of Cthulhu: The IRS has been hassling Teabaggers and "Patriots"? Shiat, they just went way up in my opinion. Anyone that hates Teabaggers is just fine by me.

Wow.  A government agency that literally has the power to take the food out of your family's mouths on the flimsiest of "evidence", charges usurious interest rates and "penalties" even for honest mistakes, and is subjected to little to no oversight is universally hated?  Who knew!

Well, there is a big difference between not wanting to deal with someone (IRS) because it is a painful process versus thinking of someone as acting in a partisan or corrupt manner.  Previously much of the IRS dislike was based on dealing with them was nasty but at least they were nasty to everyone.

Most people can barely count to potato and are selfish assholes on top of that.
