Why the Free File Alliance Is Bad for Taxpayers
by Jeremy Scott
It’s almost tax day, and many taxpayers are probably struggling to finish their returns or contemplating filing for an extension. The classic picture of a harried citizen crouched over a paper return frantically erasing numbers is out of date thanks to the advent of e-filing, but the use of online filing methods has brought with it a new problem for tax administration: the Free File Alliance (FFA).

by Clint Stretch
Tax reform is a decidedly mixed bag of the good, the bad, and the inevitable. Of course, what is good or bad is a matter of opinion, not fact.

by Martin A. Sullivan
Gridlock in Congress and lack of leadership from the White House means major tax reform like that proposed by House Ways and Means Committee Chair Dave Camp has little chance of passing before 2017.
