Medical software is a medical device and subject to regulation as such. I am in the business of writing that software, and while I as a developer can and would be happy to make things easy and awesome, risk management often determines that "easy" can also be "dangerous". Make the default route too easy and you risk a user accidentally skipping the correct route.

I'm not sure the math on that will work out.

From the perspective of personal income, we need an average taxation rate of around 27% to balance the federal budget.

And what happens when you transfer money from one account to another? You "receive" the money, so does that mean you get taxed?
