Nanny State Nonsense

Link to WSJ letters to the editor regarding the propsed tax preparer legislation.

Below is the link to the op-ed piece the CPAs are referring to.

Link to a beautiful concise response to the proposed legislation by Peter Boettke.

Money Quote: "With up to 40 percent of their incomes at stake each year - and knowing that the IRS is a humorless, unforgiving monster when it isn't fed what it believes to be its annual ration - each taxpayer has strong incentives to seek out and find tax-preparers who are skilled and careful. Surely the vast majority of persons with incomes and expenses sufficiently high to justify taking deduction other than the standard one are intelligent enough to choose their own tax-preparers without the government's "help. Alas, the Nanny State never sleeps - especially when she has rents to extract and distribute."

Down with Big Brother!
