Americans' loathing for the tax man runs deep. A new survey attempted to quantify just how deep.
It turns out that people in the U.S. hate the IRS more than several maligned figures — including O.J. Simpson — according to an online WalletHub survey.
The survey, which polled about 1,000 taxpayers on March 15-16, asked people to rank famous names they prefer to the IRS. More than half said they prefer Pope Francis (52 percent) to the IRS, while a perhaps-surprising number said they actually prefer controversial figures like Bill Cosby (14 percent), Vladimir Putin (12 percent) and Simpson (8 percent) to the tax agency. Those surveyed were allowed to choose multiple answers.
