Shocking, they are at least they recognise him...

Diff,

You are absolutely right. Apologies. Interestingly the ASI Figures only represent " average" earners. Not quite sure what they mean by that but my assumption is that if your income is above average your tax freedom day may be further into the calendar year.

Yep SSL
Bingo

Indeed the Adam Smith Institute uses some figure complied by a Government Stats office for "average" earnings,
so yes if one is in the 40% bracket
Work on well past the 3rd of June
