How about simplifying the tax code so we don't need computer programs at all?

Why? The more equitable the tax code the more complex it becomes. And assuming you're aiming for the most fair system I don't understand only applying our computational resources to rendering superheroes and recommendation engines, when we could scale the tax code complexity (and fairness) relative to our compute resources.

Which parts do you consider overly complex?
