Description: This poster discusses research on the complexity of income tax. This analysis looks at how the government and private industry compensates for the complicated tax code by providing services such as preparation. In addition, this analysis looks at the possibility of increased revenues and compliance from a simpler federal tax system, and the potential causal relationship between a complicated federal income tax system and problems with filing. The authors argues that many of the negative complications of the federal income tax structure are causally related to the complexity of the system itself.
