I’ve already discussed on Marketplace Money that the tax problems of Tim (Turbotax) Geithner and former Sen. Tom Daschle are arguments for serious tax reform and tax simplification.

In the meantime, maybe it should be law that anyone in Congress and the White House has to do their own taxes. No professional help. No accountants. That might be an incentive for tax reform.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.
