Happy Tax Freedom Day - June 14,2008

Just a short post today to wish you all a happy "Tax Freedom Day" !

According to The Fraser Institute today, June 14,2008 is Tax Freedom Day in Canada this year. Theoretically, every dime you've earned this year up until today goes to paying taxes and to various levels of government and everything you earn from today onwards your money stays in your pocket for your own use.

Tax Freedom Day is 4 days earlier this year than in 2007. Tax Freedom Day last year was 5 days earlier than 2006. Experts say that reductions in GST and other taxes over the past few years have moved the date earlier in the calendar the last 2 years in a row.

And for tomorrow ... Happy Father's Day - enjoy the rest of the weekend.
