I'm always relieved at tax time that we don't have more difficult taxes to prepare, and am so thankful for computer software to fill it all out. I looked at our tax form to see how many papers would have been included for a full paper return and it was over 100! There's all those forms for self-employment income (from my childcare last year and stuff), student info, info about the kids, etc. And the more things you have like social security disability income, family members in the military, business expenses, etc all add a bunch more to the tax papers. It's a huge relief not to have to print out all those papers and mail them in. And I'm sure whoever at the IRS processes the returns is glad they don't have as many paper returns to comb through. Hurray for software!
