Poll: Most Americans OK w/Tax Filing

A new poll suggests most taxpayers think filing a tax return is simple enough. The Associated Press-GfK poll finds that 90 percent of Americans surveyed say they'd rather leave the nation's tax system as is, complications and all, than pay more money and fill out a simpler tax return each year. Just seven percent say they'd pay more for the sake of a simpler form. Three-quarters who do it by hand or use software say completing a federal tax return is easy. Those who hire a tax preparer are more apt to say it's hard/Associated Press. More here.

Question: Do you consider filing taxes a simple enough thing to do?
