They were all in such an all consuming rush to get to electronic filing, that none of them stopped to consider, that the filing software only reports what it is given, and if you give it bad -false- information, then gosh awollee gee it reports a bad -fraudulent- return, and the beauty of doing it electronically is that it can all be done so very quickly and efficiently, and unless the review software is particularly good, and I'm not sure there is such a thing, or there is some kind of human overview, the refunds go through at the speed of light, literally.
The only saving grace is that most of the old line TP's were too computer illiterate, as well as illiterate in general, to do it, but I suspect that there are more than enough in the younger up and coming generations to make up for it.
