Tax Freedom Day On Tuesday


By Jeff Gomske

Boise, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Idaho will get to celebrate tax freedom day a bit sooner than the rest of the nation this year.

The date which Americans will have earned enough money to pay their tax obligations is April 18th. However, Idaho residents will have reached that milestone on April 9th.

Historically Tax Freedom Day has fluctuated significantly. The latest ever for Idaho was May 1st back in 2000. One hundred years earlier in 1900, Americans reached the date much earlier on January 22nd.

The total tax burden varies by state considerably due to different state tax policies and the federal tax system.
