Even with recent tax cuts, there's one way that federal income taxes are more burdensome than ever:
[T]he 17,000-page, 2.8 million-word tax code is more complex than ever. One estimate is that it now takes 28 hours and six minutes to tackle the Internal Revenue Service's 1040 form and do the necessary record keeping.
Twenty-eight hours! By contrast, a full-time week of work is 40 hours. That's three and a half full-time work days. Wouldn't it be nice if your government gave you that time off instead?
