Happy Tax Freedom Day! (Wisconsin)

If you live in Wisconsin I want to wish you a happy tax freedom day!

Yes, it is finally tax freedom day in Wisconsin. Not everyone understands the concept so let me explain. This is the day when the average person in Wisconsin has earned enough money to pay for their entire tax burden. So if the Government collected 100% of our paychecks until our total tax bill was paid, only starting today would our paychecks go into our checking accounts rather then the governments.

Instead the government does not ask for the pound of flesh up front but takes a bit at a time.
