The "San Jose Mercury News" quotes Professor Joseph Bankman, who comments on the benefits of the e-filing tax preparation service ReadyReturn:

``Here's a program that saves taxpayers time and money, but most of all, it saves them the aggravation and anxiety they have when confronted with a hard-to-understand tax form,'' said Bankman, such an avid backer that he dug into his family's savings and paid a lobbyist $30,000 to make sure he gets meetings with lawmakers on the topic. He became involved with state tax policy through earlier work on abusive tax shelters.
