I know that National Tax Freedom Day is somewhat randomly calculated, but I think it’s a good exercise to remind us of the cost of government. Unfortunately, I didn’t hear much about its passing yesterday. Are we getting immune to it? According to the Heritage Foundation it was five days later this year due to the fiscal cliff negotiations.

As Hoosiers, we can take heart in the fact that we’re only the 25th most taxed State, so our Tax Freedom Day was actually April 13th according to the Star Press. It was hard to celebrate this Saturday when I was still finalizing my 2012 taxes to mail out on the 15th…

I wrote about my meeting with the guys from VTAC (Veterans Therapeutic Art Center) a few months back. You can read that post here or you can bring up several related posts by typing VTAC in the search box to the right. There was an article in today’s Pilot News talking about their new home on the second floor of the Old Firehouse in downtown Plymouth, Indiana. You can read that article here.
I’m pleased to see them doing well and continuing their good work. Congratulations on the new digs guys!
I just read on The Foundry that the Federal Income Tax is 100 years old today. It was brought about with the ratification of 16th Amendment to the Constitution: “The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration.” Is it possible congress had any idea what they wrought back in 1913?
