So this article talks about May 19, 2020 being tax freedom day for Â Canadians.
Tax Freedom Day being the day you stop earning money for taxes and start earning for yourself. This Tax Freedom Day idea does seem a bit wonky to me.
It’s hard to explain to folks who haven’t lived in a land with such a heavy tax load what that means. Half of the money I make goes to various levels of governments as Taxes. I realize that it is the price I pay to live in a great country like Canada (and a wonderful city like Ottawa), don’t get me wrong here, I love where I live, I just wish I didn’t have to pay quite so much for it.
My brother who lived in Texas (pronounced Tax-less) brags of how little folks pay in taxes in Texas and they stillÂ complain they are paying too much, really? How can you even compare?
Well, given tomorrow is Canada Day, folks, enjoy your tax freedom, now you are making money for yourÂ creditors
