Surprise! Wisconsin Tax Burden is Burdensome

Remember that the proposed budget INCREASES Wisconsin state spending.  Got that?

...While April 18 is the national Tax Freedom Day, individual states have their own Tax Freedom Days due to their own tax structures. For Wisconsin this year, Tax Freedom Day comes on April 20, later than the national average because of Wisconsin’s current tax and spending climate. Last year Wisconsin’s Tax Freedom Day was April 21.

The relative lateness of Wisconsin’s Tax Freedom Day means it takes the state longer that most states to earn enough money to pay for the burden of state, local and federal government. In 2012, 40 states had Tax Freedom Days earlier than Wisconsin. Similarly, this year Wisconsin is tied for the 9th latest Tax Freedom Day, meaning again that 40 states get done paying their tax burden sooner than Wisconsin....

By the way, Krispy Kreme Christie's state is #3 in tax burden.  Remember that when that anti-2A twit starts hauling himself around looking for a presidential nomination.

That Christie is a fat bastard, isn't he?

How much of this can be attributed to the level of wages in Wisconsin?
