IRS making it harder to file paper returns

A complex tax code works for me

The old saying in Washington, D.C., is that every tax bill should have the subtitle "Tax Professionals' Employment for Life Act."

We tax journalists also benefit. I've made a quite decent living for more than a decade scribbling about the ever-growing, constantly changing tax code.

So while we're all frustrated by taxes occasionally, or more than occasionally, the people who help us through the tax madness get to keep their jobs.

Or, as Catherine Rampell writes in the New York Times Economix blog, the tax code and its resultant inefficiency isn't bad for everyone.
