When is your Tax Freedom Day?

Section: WTA Blog
17 July 2015 | When is your Tax Freedom Day?

ATTENTION WTA Members – The WTA is going to create a global chart of the Tax Freedom Days from all of its members. Tax Freedom Day is the first day of the year in which a nation as a whole has theoretically earned enough income to pay its taxes. Every dollar that is officially considered income by the government is counted, and every payment to the government that is officially considered a tax is counted.

Please send to me, Sarah Elliott, sarah.elliott@worldtaxpayers.org, your Tax Freedom Day for your country, and how you calculate it. Thank you!
