    I'm sure Intuit is shaking in their boots :)

    Intuit has more than US$4 billion in annual revenue and a market capitalization of more than US$10 billion.

    In the fairly recent past, it has spent millions and millions of dollars in political contributions, organizing and paying for "grassroots" efforts against, and lobbying to prevent states from offering free-online tax preparation and filing services.

    If the Federal Government's actions against the banksters are any indication, I'm certain Intuit Management is breathing easy, drinking cocktails on their private jets while on their way to some exotic resort for a quick game of golf :)

    In any event, The IRS is grossly understaffed considering it's new responsibilities under Obamacare and because of other factors [of a political nature I won't mention here]
