Every year, the Tax Foundation helps America celebrate Tax Freedom Day, when Americans have finally earned enough to start keeping their paychecks. This year, that national day fell on April 23. Breaking it down by state, depending on how high state taxes are, means some states celebrate earlier than others. Last week we listed the 10 states that — due to lower state taxes — celebrate their state Tax Freedom Days the earliest.
This week we list the top 10 states, the ones that impose the highest total taxes and therefore have the latest Tax Freedom Days in the nation. Joining them is the District of Columbia.
