April 29, 2008 Tax Freedom Day in Washington State

Posted by Warren Peterson on April 27, 2008

The average American worker’s tax burden is equal to all his income through April 23, 2008 which is three days sooner than 2007 thanks in part to the Bush tax cuts and rebates. Washington State is above average at April 29 ranking it as the fifth highest in the nation. Connecticut at May 8 takes the dubious top honor among the fifty states. Interestingly enough, seven of the top ten states also are among the twenty-two states reporting a budget crisis. Alabama ranked near the bottom with a tax freedom day of April 9, forty sixth in the nation, is included in the list of states facing a budget crisis.
