, these reporting requirements are designed to catch business people (particularly in the service industries) not reporting income that they should be reporting under current law already aka "cash uner the table transactions" & such. It does seem a bit ridiculous and burdensome to the non-tax cheats amongst us. I predict HEAVY modifications in the next year or so with fine-tuning to follow.
I may fudge on some areas of the law, but i pay my taxes. I figure, since i haven't served in the armed forces or as an unpaid civil servant, i owe something on the maintenance bill for this country (even if most of it seems to get wasted on crap).
