There is this idea out there that the country has a tax code. Actually, it has a tax obstacle course. It is almost impossible to decipher the obstacle course with its many minefields and politicians constantly argue about how to “simplify” it. That is why the annual dust-up between the Tax Foundation and the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities is a fascinating spat.
Each year the Foundation announces Tax Freedom Day – the date on which it says we have worked long enough to pay federal, state and local taxes. This year the Foundation says freedom will arrive next Monday in Georgia and one week later nationally, on Monday, April 17. Are you feeling better?
