The 4th of May

Source: Tax Freedom Day Report

 

The French have their Bastille Day on the 14th of July; the Americans have their Independence Day on the 4th of July; here in Australia we celebrate slightly earlier the 4th of May as our Tax Freedom Day.

In other words, every day from the 1st January up until the 4th May this year, we worked only to pay the government the taxes due. That’s the first 123 days of this year.

Think about THAT next time you vote for more government hand-outs! The 'free lunch' you have right now may choke you to death.
