Workers of Tennessee, take the day off. You’ve earned it. While most of the country will work another two weeks or more to reach Tax Freedom Day, Tennessee workers passed that milestone on March 31, according to the Tax Foundation.
Tennessee has the lowest average tax burden in the country this year, the foundation says.
Tax Freedom Day represents how long it will take the average worker to earn enough money pay his or her total federal, state and local tax obligation for the year. For the nation as a whole, Tax Freedom Day this year comes on April 17.
