  • Smaller IRS

    If the damned tax code wasn't SO complex these days it would be easier for the gov't and MORE importantly -- for the filer.

    Tax laws never go away. And to rewrite the tax code and all the systems needed will take up to ten years.

    Good. The butcher's thumb gets fatter every time I visit him. Maybe he ought to lose weight - my bill will be less.

  • IRS uses ALC
    Poolshark
    Mr. Powner is just another bureaucrat who doesn't understand the genius of IBM Assembler language Code. Yes, we need to spend money on training. ALC runs the fastest in CPU time of all languages. Everything else has to go thru a translation process first, which slows it down. When you handle the volume of records that IRS does, you need CPU speed first and foremost. They call us 'antiquated', they call us 'dinosaurs', they call us 'Legacy Park'. If they spent half as much money developing new programmers and holding ALC class, as they have spent paying expensive contractors to 'modernize', they would be way ahead of the game. Not only, 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it', but after billions of dollars wasted, you still can't do better, so why not just admit it? And invest in US! Just because it doesn't look pretty and shiny on your tiny little laptop where all you have to do is push a button, doesn't mean that Assembler is not the best and we are not the brightest.
