How could the federal government and state governments make it easier to fill out tax returns?
Individuals who don't own businesses spend tens of billions of dollars each year (in fees and time) filing taxes. Most of this is unnecessary. The government already has most of the information it asks us to provide. It knows what are wages are, how much interest we earn, and so on. It should provide the information it has on the right line of an electronic tax return it provides us or our accountant. Think about VISA. VISA doesn't send you a blank piece of paper each month, and ask you to list all your purchases, add them up and then penalize you if you get the wrong number. It sends you a statement with everything it knows on it. We are one of the only countries in the world that makes filing so hard. Many companies send you a tentative tax return, which you can adjust. Others have withholding at the source, so the average citizen doesn't file anything.California adopted a form of the above -- it was called ReadyReturn. 98%+ of those who tried it loved it. But the program was bitterly opposed by Intuit, makers of Turbo Tax. They went so far as to contribute $1 million to a PAC that made an independent expenditure for one candidate running for statewide office. The program was also opposed by Rush Limbaugh and Grover Norquist. The stated reason was that the government would cheat taxpayers. I believe the real reason is that they want tax filing to be painful, since they believe that acts as a constraint on government programs.
What can the Federal Trade Commission do to punish a business found to be in violation of US federal law?
The FTC has a broad array of options at its disposal, and they depend in part on which of the major FTC enforcement arms you’re talking about. The Consumer Protection Bureau enforces false-advertising and other consumer protection laws, for example, among other things, and the Competition Bureau primarily enforces the antitrust laws. The FTC’s enforcement options include:filing lawsuits in federal court to challenge alleged wrongdoingconducting pre-lawsuit investigations with its broad investigatory powers
How does the Federal Trade Commission prevent anti-trust laws from being broken?
Mergers and acquisitions over a certain size require a premerger notification under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act. http://www.ftc.gov/bc/hsrIf the documentation submitted with the application raises concerns with FTC staff, they can make a second request for additional documentation. They may also take depositions from employees of the parties. If, after all of this, the FTC believes there will be anticompetitive effects, they can sue to block the merger. That's what happened with American Airlines and US Airways. That trial is scheduled to begin in November. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/20...The process can take months or even years. In some cases, the parties decide that the FTC review and/or challenge is too burdensome and call off the deal. One small example is a hospital deal in New Mexico that was called off in 2012. The hospital was later acquired by another company that didn't worry the FTC. http://online.wsj.com/article/BT...
Why does Federal Trade Commission still allow disconnected phone numbers of telemarketers to call folks daily?
They don’t disconnect the telemarketer’s phone number. What you’re seeing is callerID spoofing. The telemarketer sends a spoofed number as “its” number. If the number is disconnected, or has never been assigned, that has nothing to do with it.Why do they allow telemarketers to send callerIDs down the line, that’s the real question. Their telco knows their number, so the equipment should just ignore the number being sent, and identify the call with its real number. But they’d lose money doing that, and money rules.
