The process of filing every year is met with dread and resignation from businesses and individuals alike. The U.S. tax code is extremely large and complex. What’s worse, even a small mistake could lead to an audit or fine from the IRS.
For context, tax statutes passed by Congress into law total about 2,652 pages and explain tax regulations in over 1 million words. By comparison, that is longer than the King James Bible, with 788,280 words, and comparable to the entire Harry Potter collection of novels.
