The national survey said the prospect of getting a return as the most-cited reason for not hating the process. But it’s not the only factor.
“When asked why they like doing their income taxes, 29% say that they are getting a refund, while 17% say they just don’t mind it or they are good at it; 13% say doing their taxes gives them a sense of control, while the same percentage cites a feeling of obligation – that it is their duty to pay their fair share. — via Pew Research”
Among those who dislike filing taxes, 31 percent said the complexity, amount of time it can take and fear of making a mistake as their main reason.
