Tax Days

Taxes, taxes, taxes! In the United States and the UK, April is the month associated with tax bills or the calculation thereof. Tax Freedom Day, in contrast, is the first day of the year in which a nation as a whole has theoretically earned enough income to pay its taxes. Varying from country to country, and calculated separately throughout regional tax jurisdictions, Tax Freedom day is effectively the first day you work for yourself! 💸
