Tax freedom day 2007

Here's a state-by-state ranking of when you will have earned enough to pay off your taxes.


NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Americans this year will have earned enough to pay off all their taxes at the federal, state and local levels by April 30, assuming a 7-day workweek, according to estimates by the Tax Foundation.

Since states and local governments can choose for themselves how much to tax income, sales, property and other transactions, and because residents in some states make more than others and hence pay more federal tax, "tax freedom day" comes earlier in some places than others.
