Tax Freedom Day

Marquette, MIApril 21, 2014 – Today is the day you start working for yourself!

Yes, today is the day you begin working for yourself and your family.  This year, 111 days of your efforts went to pay taxes.  In 2014 people (and Eeevil corporations) will pay 4.5 trillion in taxes.  This is over 30% of income earned in the country, so until now, you’ve only been working to pay those taxes… Now the rest of the money is yours.

If we include the fact that the government actually spends more than it takes in, and add that to the mix (because we’ll have to pay it eventually)… tax freedom day is actually May 6.  If you see anyone in the top 1-10% today, please thank them.  The top 1% pay 38% of the taxes.   The top 5% pay 58% of the taxes, and the top 10% pay 70% of the taxes.  Maybe you should buy them a cake… or at least give them the proper portion of a pie!
