Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) today issued the following statement on Tax Freedom Day:
"Today, hardworking American taxpayers can finally obtain the benefits of their hard-earned income instead of sending it to Washington. This year's Tax Freedom Day falls on April 18th; however, if annual federal borrowing were included in the number that derived today's Tax Freedom Day, it would fall 21 days later, on May 9th. While our economy still struggles to grow and Americans are working nearly one-third of the year just to pay their taxes, the President continues his push for higher taxes. I am committed to working toward a fairer, and simpler tax code that will put our country on a path to creating jobs and putting more of Americans' hard-earned cash back in their pockets."
