That is the length of the federal tax code. And the government does not believe that this is long enough. This debacle will surely get longer and more complicated unless we demand and end to the madness. I believe that I heard that Americans spend about 27 billion dollars per year to purchase tax related products and services. There is no excuse for this. A tax code so complicated that you need to hire a lawyer or accountant so that you don't go to jail or get ripped off by the feds. This crap is getting so insane that even the secretary of the treasury could not get his taxes right. There needs to be a revolt!!!
