I agree that tax filing should be that: verifying, and just signing off if everything looks good.

There's a good planet money episode about the mess Intuit fights to maintain by lobbying in state and federal assemblies.

I also understand the argument for keeping jobs... But only to a certain extent. I'd honestly rather pay the unskilled worker to stay home and think about a way to be happy and maybe pursue a passion or an intersting job by which they would make the world a better place, rather than conditioning their pay by spending time at a mind numbing job that is annoying everyone.

E-file is the future. I work for the payroll industry, and it's pretty incredible to see how little tax agencies are keeping up to pace with technology. Some agencies still use floppy disks for SUI rate exchanges...
