Tax Freedom After 105 Days

In 2019, Tax Freedom Day—the day after which Americans have worked enough days of the year to pay their federal, state, and local taxes—occurs just one day after Tax Day, April 15, the deadline for filing federal tax returns. According to the Tax Foundation’s annual “Tax Freedom Day” report, Americans will work for 105 days of the year to pay their collective $5.42 trillion tax bill—a figure equal to about 29% of Americans’ incomes.
