Next Monday, April 15 is the day that something has to be done about your income taxes. Since late January you could submit your taxes but next Monday is the day of reckoning or you will face fees and penalties.

Four days later is Tax Freedom Day. That is the date the average American has to work in order to pay the nationís tax burden. So, for the first 109 days of the year you work to pay the government.

Tax Freedom Day has varied a lot. In 1900 that date was January 22nd because the average American spent only 5.9% of their income to pay the tax burden.

In 1905 that date actually fell to January 19th, the earliest date on record with only 5.0% of the individualís income going to paying taxes.
