Have the government give taxpayers access to an internet tax return form with all the sources of income that it knows about already entered into it. It already knows all or most of your sources of income because it receives copies of your tax forms.
You would only need to fill in any extra things that the government doesn't know about, if any, and then click submit and your taxes would be filed. That would take just minutes. The computer would calculate how much refund you get. Employers and banks could just submit their information online to the government instead of sending tax forms to the tax payer. Then that information could be used by the government computers to create a tax return for each taxpayer.
People without a computer could be given access to government computers. You could save millions of man-hours every year by making it easier for taxpayers to file their taxes. Additionally you would cut down on the paper and mailing costs associated with paper tax returns.
