Business First: Tax Freedom Day arrives in New York

May 6, 2013 Updated May 6, 2013 at 7:29 AM EDT

Congratulations New York state residents. You've made it to another Tax Freedom Day.

That is according to the calculation of the Tax Foundation. The group takes into people working full time as of Jan. 1 and putting all their earnings toward tax bills. Doing so would take them up to May 6, making New York second from the bottom in arriving at Tax Freedom Day behind only Connecticut.

The national average was April 18.
