Was it duplex printed on both sides like the IRS's original forms?

How much of it was extraneous worksheets generated by the preparer's software to fatten up the visible "product" sold to the customer and not actually required to be filed?

As a self-correcting measure aimed at the ever increasing complexity of the IRC, Congress ought to enact a tax credit that would rebate a certain sum back to each taxpayer based on the weight of his return, as filed according to law. What might the proper poundage rate be?

If his tax preparer charges by the pound, he should have requested e-filing, instead.
