How does this year's date stack up against previous days of liberation?
National Tax Freedom Day is this Sunday—marking the day that the average American will have finished making good on this year's tax bill.
It will be a good day for workers like Larry Schubarth, who feel grateful for having a job but for whom paying taxes is not a "favorite thing."
"I know about a third of what I make goes into taxes, it seems like," Schubarth said. "We have a pretty close budget, so there's not a whole lot extra."
