Tax Freedom Day by State - Animation

The redder the state the later taxpayers are free. This is how long we work for the the government. After that date we get to keep what we earn. Washington was among the worst in 1977. It gets better, but always remains a late date - red or orange = worse than all of our neighbors except California in the later years; not in the earlier years. But always well above average. The Tax Foundation - 4-D Animation of Tax Freedom Day by State: Our friend Alex Lundry, Research Director at TargetPoint, is at it again. (As he said from a Twitter post yesterday, "Can't help myself.") Alex uses software from UUorld to create a 4-D animation of Tax Freedom Day by state from 1977 to 2009. Check it out!
