Patt Morrison for April 14, 2006

Fear and loathing at tax time

More people would rather endure a root canal, get a job performance review, or weigh themselves after the holiday than complete their taxes, according to a recent poll on About.com. Patt Morrison is joined by William Perez, a former IRS tax specialist with a special interest in helping people get out of tax trouble, to talk about the intensity of Americans dread of tax season and offer some practical help for the ultimate tax procrastinators. Joseph Bankman, co-developer of California's ReadyReturn pilot project and professor at Stanford Law School, joins the discussion to talk about the state's program, which has the potential to reduce the burden of filing taxes for up to 3 million Californians.
