Tax Freedom Day from the Tax Foundation

April 9, 2010

I want to be fair, so I am including other calculations for Tax Freedom Day.  I have posted here about 2009 “Cost of Government Day” and here about what we think YOU pay in taxes.  We have included our calculations so you can examine our calculations and determine for yourself if we missed something.  We encourage you to do your own research, so that you can make informed decisions.  Please, if you find mistakes that we have made, let us know so we can remedy the situation.  Now for a new article that comes up with a WAY different conclusion.

Here is an article from the Tax Foundation, that says that “Tax Freedom Day” is on April 9th, 2010.  We have not had a chance to examine their method, but suffice it to say, we think they are NOT including ALL taxes.

We will make further posts, as we examine their methods.

Cost of Government Day

August 11, 2009

This year (2009) is the LATEST cost of Government day EVER. It occurs on August 12th.  It beats the previous longest year by 23 days.  That is MORE than 3 weeks, that every American (you know, those of us who work) had to work, to PAY for the Government.

How does that make you feel???

Do not worry, the rest of the year you can work for yourself and your family.  The Government will not be back UNTIL the New Year.

P.S.  This date does NOT include any of the costs of Cap and Trade and it does NOT include any of the costs for National Health Care!!!!
