Interesting that LA and MS have the earliest tax freedom day.

Louisiana is a nice place if you like wine

lowest wine tax rate in the country

even though 19th highest in the country for beer (at-least ours isn't a control state stupid baptists.

but LA is probably the wettest state in the union. How many states have drive through daiquiris, alcohol in every gas station mom and pop store and such. (hard liqure in those places too) Its not as common as you might thing in this country.

None that I know of. It does contribute to our high auto insurance rates.

Nice post, really interesting.

Tax Freedom Day - Some of those states' people are receiving less than 2/3 of their yearly salary, working 4+ months each year for the sole benefit of state, local and fed governments. And I don't think that includes any fees, such as sewer or garbage. How long before that hits the 6 month mark, where people only receive half of what they earn?

Interesting but I would think that has more to do with a significant portion of the population not paying any federal taxes because of income and many actually getting a net credit(ie child income credit).

My SO and I just came back from Missouri. We could buy (if we had wanted) beer and wine at the hotel. Not the bar, mind you, we could buy it from the small pantry it operated.

You made me curious, so I looked for methodology, found this:

quote:

Tax Freedom Day is calculated by taking taxes paid in the current year divided by the nation's income for that year, which is derived from BEA statistics, and then projected by Tax Foundation economists using economic and budget projections from various sources, most notably the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). This paper contains an overview of the methodology that goes into calculating the nation's Tax Freedom Day.

This paper also addresses some methodological concerns, including those that have been made in the past, and some still to this day, by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP). Each year, the CBPP releases a criticism of the Tax Foundation's annual calculation of Tax Freedom Day. Their criticisms of Tax Freedom Day have varied over the years but typically center on essentially one main criticism. They object to Tax Freedom Day to describe the tax burden of the nation as a whole, because it may over- or understate the tax burden faced by particular taxpayers

I don't wanna burst anyone's bubble but those figures are way off.

First off in Texas where I own 3 gas stations, the tax is .39 per gallon state + federal. I don't know where they got .20 but that may be state alone or something, so we pay .40/gallon to the government.....1000 gallons a year and you pay $40/month to uncle sam

Secondly, the cigarette tax is $1.41? Again BS bc a pack of marlboro lights is $2.75 at the indian reservation and I personally purchase them for $5.15/pack and sell for $6.15/pack so that alone is a $3.40 difference, huge price difference since good ole indians do not pay taxes.
