Pennsylvania's Tax Freedom Day will arrive on April 14 this year, the 104th day of 2011. That means Pennsylvanians will work well over three months of the year, from January 1 to April 14, before they have earned enough money to pay this year's tax obligations at the federal, state and local levels.
Does it bother you that you worked over 100 days this year just to pay the government?
The real question is, what are you going to do about it?
Hopefully, your answer is that you will get involved in some way to demand tax reform.
Some suggestions: Write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper about taxes. Call you Federal, State, and Local Elected Officials and demand tax reform. Call talk radio programs to talk about how taxes impact you. Get involved with a group of other Patriotic Pennsylvanians. Volunteer to help a political candidate that shares your views on taxes.
Winning the tax reform fight begins with you.
So, how will you celebrate Pennsylvania's Tax Freedom Day?
