Re: Who Knows Tax Law?

"Western governments are enamored with overly complex tax schemes "

Because they keep adding bits to say you _can't_ do something when it's exploited instead of saying what you _can_ do in the first place.

They could say you can do A, B and C and not pay tax on that income, but everything else is taxable. Then when Accountant Z comes up with scheme D it's not allowed as it isn't A.B or C.
