Getting Lucky in Kentucky
Bluegrass Bureau Chief Ken CamBoo says today may be Tax Freedom Day in Kentucky, but it won’t arrive for the country as a whole until April 19. According to our friends at The Tax Foundation, today’s the day in CamBooLand each year you stop working exclusively for the government, because every dollar you’ve earned so far this year will have theoretically gone to pay all of your federal, state, and local taxes for 2018.
Maybe that’s why our Quote for Today Committee chose Franklin P. Adams’ “Count the day won when, turning on its axis, this earth imposes no additional taxes.” And many people remember when FDR said “Taxes shall be levied according to ability to pay. That is the only American principle.”
THE CAMBOOZLER says Tax Freedom Day comes to Kentucky six days before “Tax Day” in America on April 19 (only the 109th day of the year) and two days before April 15, when over-taxed payers on the North Shore can begin working for themselves, since everybody knows state and local taxes are lower in Kentucky. Maybe that explains why so many folks besides Bungals bad boys and over-sexed MILFs prefer living in Kentucky, the land of fast women and beautiful horses. Which is why Beloved Whistleblower Publisher Charles Foster Kane will never forget that time he had a three-hour lunch at the Wok with Miss Vicki and Y’All Ville Mayor Blondie Whalen.
