Returned free filing was attempted by Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama, an effort that would have brought a hassle free tax system for painless, or mostly painless filling of your federal income tax. Each time, different lobbyist from HRBlock, and Turbotax, have convinced leaders that Americans are too stupid to file their taxes, and that they need to extort a fee to file these idiot's taxes. 

 Return free would involve the IRS sending you an itemized report of what they think you owe, and you would simply list your deductions, and return what your new adjust amount should be. No more tax codes, school district look ups, having a wannabe CPA make costly mistakes. And, best of all, no more fees. My cost to do my taxes is upward of $150 dollars per year for the Federal, and $35 for State. It takes nearly 3 hours to comb through all our documents, crunch all the math, and hit send. Why, when  it can be so much easier?

On January 4th, 2021, the CARES Act, also known as HR 9150, entitled the Department of Treasury to issue a COVID-19 relief payment to millions of Americans to help with paying bills, rent, and buying food. All necessities for all of us. For those who are still waiting to return to work, that money would have been a lifeline. Various companies, HRBlock included, intercepted thesepayments by changing millions of customers routing and account numbers, and funneled this money into their corporate bank account. Then, as if to do even more harm, they refused to answer calls, or interact with customers at all. Leaving only a vague Twitter message saying all payments would be completed by the 4th. Those payments never showed up. 

 It's through this inconsistency that these corporations should be dismantled and discredited. It leaves far too much room for hackers to steal your information, or leave you more susceptible to frauds. Not to mention the selling of your personal information and still charging you for it. Bank fees, processing fees, transfer fees, filing fees, ATM fees, withdrawal fees. Let's end this. 

Signup to ask Congress to pass a bill that ends this corrupt practice, and robs many Americans in millions of dollars annually, and have the IRS do its job, and do it better than they can.
