Tax Freedom Day For Illinois

Today is a special day for me and my fellow Illinoians. We have been slaving away from Jan 1st until now to pay for our tax burden. While the National Tax Freedom average day is April 30th, in Illinois we get a couple extra days in the House of Pain. Though we are worse off than the average, there are 10 states worse off than Illinois. The TaxProf Blog has provided a list of those states and the Tax Freedom Map of 2007. States still being whipped by their Taskmasters are:
  1. Connecticut (May 20)
  2. New York (May 16)
  3. New Jersey (May 10)
  4. Vermont (May 9)
  5. Rhode Island (May 9)
  6. Nevada (May 8)
  7. California (May 7)
  8. Washington (May 6)
  9. Massachusetts (May 6)
  10. Minnesota (May 4)
Wow, Connecticut has almost 3 weeks more to go! It is amazing that even though on average people work from Jan 1 - Apr 30 for the government, many still think we are undertaxed. Such slavery is obscene by any standard.
Free at last, free at last
I thank God I'm free at last

Well, I will enjoy being loosed from the chains and the whip from now until next Jan 1.
