TPA responds to Tax Freedom Day 2019

Tax Freedom Day, a report published annually by the Adam Smith Institute, is a measure of when Britons stop paying tax and start putting their earnings into their own pocket.

John O'Connell, chief executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said: "It’s demoralising to think we spend so long each year working for politicians. It's even worse to think just how much of that hard-earned cash is wasted. We hope the Adam Smith Institute will report an earlier Tax Freedom Day next year, as it might mean that Britain is becoming a more pro-enterprise country with lower, simpler taxes funding better public services."
