Earlier this year, the Internal Revenue Service’s taxpayer advocate launched a suggestion box. The idea was that all those Americans frustrated with the tax code (which would basically be all of us) could offer our own tips for reforming the tax system.

Now, Daily Finance reports that the taxpayer advocate is sharing some of those suggestions with the public.

Not surprisingly, many people just want the tax code to be simpler.

Others had more detailed suggestions. Some people think the government should drop credits, such as the child tax credit, while others argued that certain things, such as unemployment benefits, should not be taxed.

Do you have an idea for tax code reform? Drop a note in the suggestion box here.
