Happy Taxpayers Day!

Today marks the first day in this financial year in which you get to start keeping the money you work for.

Earnings from every day since July 1 – 137 days in total – have gone to federal, state and local government coffers.

For the average worker this means that about 20 of the 52 weeks of the year are spent working for the Government – or 37 per cent of all earnings going toward tax.

Don’t worry, it’s all going to a good cause.
