Happy Tax Freedom Day!

Font Size:

2010 is 99 days old, which means as of today, you’ve earned enough money to pay your taxes for the year. So long, taxman. See ya in 9  months!

According to the Tax Foundation, “Americans will pay more taxes in 2010 than they will spend on food, clothing and shelter combined.” But who needs all that crap anyway? It’s worth the sacrifice just to keep our highly competent and astonishingly efficient government running smoothly. And just wait until our “free” health care kicks in. Move over, Fourth of July, Tax Freedom Day is movin’ on up!
