Happy Tax Freedom Day!
April 9, 2010
Many states have already celebrated their Tax Freedom Days, and now Tax Freedom Day for the nation as a whole—the day on which Americans have earned enough to pay all their federal, state, and local taxes for the year—has finally arrived.
At 6:00 tonight Tax Foundation President Scott Hodge will discuss Tax Freedom Day with Neil Cavuto on Fox Business News, the latest of many Tax Freedom Day TV and radio interviews.
Some other Tax Freedom Day highlights:
- From Building a Better Indiana, the Business Blog of the Indiana Chamber of Commerce: "Freedom Comes With a Big (Tax) Price"
- Tax Counsel and Director of State Projects Joe Henchman discussed Tax Freedom Day at the Heritage Foundation's weekly Bloggers Briefing. Watch the video.
