  • 51% of Americans use a professional tax preparer, 25% use a software program, 15% fill out the form manually, and 8% have a friend or family member do it, according to a new AP-Ipsos national survey (story, results) of 1,000 adults (conducted 4/2 through 4/4).
  • 53% of Americans say the amount they pay in taxes is "too high," 2% say "too low," and 41% say "just right," according to a new Gallup national survey of 1,008 adults (conducted 4/2 through 4/5).
  • 50% of Americans believe "person who earns twice as much as you" pays less than twice as much in taxes, 7% believe more than twice as much, 19% believe exactly twice as much, according to a new Rasmussen Reports automated survey of 1,000 adults (conducted 4/6 through 4/7).
