Britons work until lunch just to pay taxes to the State...

BRITONS spend more than half of each working day earning money just to pay taxes.

Analysis relating the tax burden to the working day suggests that the average 9-5 worker takes until 1.21pm to cover their tax bill and then spends three hours 39 minutes working for themselves.

The claim was made by the TaxPayers’ Alliance, which wants lower taxes and less Government waste.

Tomorrow is annual Tax Freedom Day, the day when workers start earning for themselves rather than paying tax for Government spending.

For the first 149 days of the year, every penny earned by workers leaves their pay packet to support the state.


Don't miss:

  1. WHO planning to tax internet activity! WTF!
  2. Flight tax nothing to do with global warming...
  3. Prince Charles gets more taypayer money, but ...
  4. French carbon tax gets a kick in the butt...
  5. Most Americans don't trust the government...
  6. Why are the Queen and corporations receiving EU farm subsidies?
