IRS Head Uses Paid Preparer, Says Tax Code Too Complex

From the Wall Street Journal:

Steve Scully, the C-SPAN host, asked [IRS Commissioner Douglas] Shulman if he prepares his own taxes. Shulman smiled slightly and said, “I use a preparer.”

Scully asked why, to which Shulman smiled and said, “Uh, I’ve used one for years. I find it convenient and I find the tax code complex, so I use a preparer.”
