Tax Freedom Day
Freedom, Tax Man, Mine, Money, Movin' Out.... so many songs about taxes! The song I sing about taxes could NEVER be on the radio, but that's a different story.
National Tax Freedom Day is coming up on April 12th. What that means is this: On average, a worker in the United States must work from January 1st - April 12th just to make enough money to pay his taxes for the year (according to The Tax Foundation). That's 102 days. The rest of the year, we are working for 'ourselves'.
In Louisiana, since our average income is lower, our Tax Freedom Day was March 30th.
I found some interesting information/statistics about taxes, in an UNBIASED format, on The Tax Foundation website.
