As far as I know, there is no NEC code prohibiting splicing two #12 wires together with a third wire (making a pigtail) and plugging it into one 20 amp circuit breaker, right?

I'm not talking about making a splice in a circuit that is travelling THROUGH the sub panel, and this assumes that the circuit won't be overloaded, they share the same neutral, etc.

I'm just trying to determine if there is a specific NEC code against splicing two wires together and pigtailing them into one circuit breaker.
