On Wednesday, President Barack Obama released his FY 2014 Budget in which he proposes more taxes on the American people - but the tax code is already 13 miles long!

According to CCH Standard Federal Tax Reporter, the current U.S. Federal Tax code is 73,954 pages long.

A standard sheet of paper is 8.5 inches in width by 11 inches in length.

If we multiply the length of the paper (11 inches) by 73,954 pages, we get 813,494 inches.  That equals 67,791 feet.

A mile is 5,280 feet long.  Divide the 67,791 feet by one mile and you get 12.84 miles of tax code!
