In a Marketplace.org story yesterday a corresponent from ProPublica followed up on a previous story regarding the prohibition against the IRS developing their own tax filing software. It seems enough people had trouble using the TurboTax and H&R Block free filing sites that Congress may actually have to allow the IRS to provide a site for the free filing of taxes, much like in the rest of the world.
See my original post for more details. The ProPublica articles are great too, I recommend them for the full story.
