National Survey of 1,000 Adults

Conducted February 21-22, 2014
By Rasmussen Reports

 

1* When will you file your income taxes?


2* How are your income taxes prepared? Do you do it yourself, hire a professional, or have someone else in your family take care of your income tax filing?

3* Will you get a refund, owe money, or will you pretty much break even?

4* How concerned are you that the Internal Revenue Service will audit your taxes?

 

5* Do most Americans try to be honest when they file their income taxes, or are most trying to hide something?

 

6* Think about someone who makes twice as much as you do. When you add up all the taxes that are paid, does a person who earns twice as much as you pay twice as much in taxes, less than twice as much in taxes or more than twice as much in taxes?

 

7* What about someone who earns half as much as you do? Does a person who earns half as much as you pay half as much in taxes, less than half as much in taxes or more than half as much in taxes?

 

8* Does the United States have the best tax system in the world?
