Arizonans collectively face a lighter combined tax bill than most Americans, requiring 105 days this year to pay all federal, state and local levies, compared to 114 days for Americans overall, according to a new report.
The annual study from the Tax Foundation indicates “tax-freedom day” arrives April 15 in Arizona compared to April 24 for the nation overall. This measure, which ignores leap years, shows how long it would take to pay all federal, state and local taxes on average, assuming people paid all taxes each year before other expenses. The study also apportions a share of corporate income and other taxes to the various states.
