Today in the US is Tax Day, the deadline for filing your tax return. Tax Freedom Day for 2009 was 2 days ago, April 13th.
Wikipedia says that "Tax Freedom Day is the first day of the year in which a nation as a whole has theoretically earned enough income to fund its annual tax burden." On Wikipedia, I also learned that in 1900 Tax Freedom Day was January 22nd. Things have changed.
