April 6 - Texas Tax Freedom Day
 

Each year, the Tax Foundation calculates dates for “Tax Freedom Day” — a day representing the length of time Americans must work in the year to earn enough to pay all of their federal, state and local taxes for that year. In 2009, Texas had the earliest Tax Freedom Day among the 10 largest states, and thus the lowest combined tax burden.
