While Intuit (Turbotax) push their new cutesy and trendy looking advertising campaign, it's worth remembering that they're a sleazy company who aggressively lobby to keep the tax system complicated to ensure a continued market for their product
@fraggle What it could be like (and is, in some places without Intuit:)
1. Receive an easy-to-understand tax form, which is already completely filled out.
2 (optional.) If you want to add/change something, like deductions, do that.
3. Send a text message to approve, or send the form back in the mail.
It takes me about 5 minutes in total, and costs nothing.
(I've lived in the US and done taxes there too, and I missed this so much.)
@alva I grew up in the UK and never submitted a tax return before moving to the US
