SDUT supports return of ReadyReturn: THUMBS UP!

The Franchise Tax Board made it easy for the poor to file their tax returns: it sends them a filled-out form that just needs to be signed and sent back if they agree with it.

But the California legislature, after lobbying by the TurboTax folks, stopped the practice. Steve Westly and the brave members of the Franchise Tax Board then brought ReadyReturn back!

Note to the California legislature: send the TurboTax lobbyists home! The poor shouldn't have to pay TurboTax for extremely simple tax returns.
