I was wondering about that too. The Cullens are probably millionaires (they have a car that doesn't exist OR make logical sense?) Jacob and the wolves are probably the tallest guys in the world...
Oh! This also just occurred to me: They probably don't pay taxes for all the money they make. It was already been mentioned about playing the stock market using fake names or under the guise of a business, but you have to figure they're only paying taxes for Carlisle's doctor's salary, meaning, in the eyes of the government they probably are only making a couple 100k a year (or less, given that I doubt Forks' hospital pays all too well). So while they are probably multi-millionaires, the majority of that money is probably not associated with the Cullen name.
Also, I know a few people who are 6' 5" - 7', and most of the time a good amount of their family is also tall. The wolves can just say they have hearty genes. =P
