We’re working on a tax return project. It involves a 2012 Form 8938 (PDF).
Forty-six (multi-word obscenity deleted) pages long.
That’s how long the Form 8938 is, in draft form.
And we ain’t done yet, pardner. This here thing might be getting’ biggerer a’fore we’re done.
And of course there’s the FBAR that goes along with this project.
This is how American civilization dies–one spectacularly ill-conceived idea at a time, (ahem) emitted by Congress and the Treasury Department.
Let’s just bury the world in useless paperwork, shall we?
