Introducing iRS from Apple, its new corporate tax evasion product, with all the sleek simplicity and hip commercials that you have come to expect from this company.

As The Daily Show explains, that is how we end up with a highly complicated tax code that only the very rich and powerful know how to manipulate for their benefit.
