Shocking as it may seem, the average American works until April 17th this year just to pay his/her Federal, state, and local taxes. How ironic that April 17th is the day your income taxes are due this year! Depressing is the thought that if the Federal government had not used borrowing to cover so much of its cost, this year's Tax Freedom Day would be May 14th!
Average Californian taxpayers will continue to work an additional three days - until April 20th - to pay their share of taxes.
