America's income tax is disliked by everyone who pays it. Its complexity is beyond comprehension, its rules unintelligible to ordinary and extraordinary people--and to the IRS which often cannot correctly answer tax questions.

And most people feel it is a corrupt system that is politically rigged to unfairly benefit someone else.
