Why Doing Taxes Is So Hard | Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj | Netflix

As the tax deadline approaches, Hasan exposes an industry built around making tax prep more complicated and expensive.

  • Now try filing US taxes when you've never lived in the US but need to do it anyways because reasons. And you don't have a US bank account or credit card because why would you? You'd think the bureaucracy is worse in Germany or Switzerland, and you'd be wrong. Thanks for giving all the forms a letter soup name. Thanks for the garbage website that is the IRS homepage, where an overview of what you need to file is nowhere in sight. In Switzerland the states release multiple different versions for filing your taxes for free every year. With explanations and examples. It's not perfect, but it's so much better than the US.

  • The unfortunate part is that, for a lot of people trying to make ends meet, the rules are complicated if you hold more than one job, are self-employed, or contract for specific jobs; you need more that the free filing forms. The tax codes need to be simplified, and that will be always opposed by, not only the tax preparing companies, but by the financial institutions, the mega companies, and the very rich that benefit from the over-complicated code and the loopholes it affords them.

  • Your choice to use. Why didn't this guy say anything when Hulu went free, but only select things are free, the majority was still premium. They said free, why wasn't it all free? This is stupid. Its called a free market, turbo tax isnt the only tax service. Do some searching for once in your life. The top results in a search are paid reservations. How often do you look past the first page of results? Mindless sheep

  • I loved turbo tax when I was 15 and worked at a restaurant and was a dependent, now that I’m a freelance artist I had to do deluxe even though I made freaking $2000 I ended up paying about a third of it in taxes and fees. I couldn’t enter my business expenses, potentially lowering how much I owed, without paying for the super deluxe bullshit.

  • Could you or one of your associates from daily show cover rubber and how it affects the world medical supply? there is a natural rubber shortage cause of a ongoing tree blight (there are measures in place to social distance the trees even via plane routes) for years before covid and I'm worried global demand for medical supplies can affect the remaining trees, drive up cost or affect ability to get those needed supplies e.g. gloves, semi truck tires and oxygen masks

  • Yeah we can be proud of the "good" parts but the children absolutely need to know about the nastiness that was this year and our history in general. Getting a highlights reel of it is exactly how we got where we are today in my opinion. It sucks realizing most of what I learned growing up wasn't the full picture.

  • Anyone interested in the tax system should read T. R. Reid's book A Fine Mess which explains the US tax system and compares it to other systems. Contrary to what you might think, it's actually very well written and even intriguing, with a "cliffhanger" at the end of each episode. (Hasan you should get him on your show!) For example, I learned in Japan, it takes something like 5 minutes for tax filing. The gov't sends everyone a postcard with your details and how much you owe or are refunded: then it automatically withdraws or puts money in your account. You don't have to do anything unless you dispute the postcard. For 80% of citizens, they have to do nothing further than read the postcard. In the Netherlands it takes less than 15 minutes. smile.amazon.com/Fine-Mess-Global-Simpler-Efficient/dp/1594205515?sa-no-redirect=1

  • In our country you can fill out form yourself or it can be filled out by your empoyer and you only sign it if it is correct, that is all you do while employed, you just sign the tax form if it is correct, how simpler that can even be?

  • IRS's enforcement is crippled while Americans abroad are denied basic bank accounts and insurance & our bank forms now specific ask if we're a "US person" because the US government thinks it should have extraterritorial powers to watch Americans who dared to leave. Cutting out the FATCA and FBAR shite might save them some money but then how would they punish us?
