Tax Freedom Day for Goldman Sachs has already happened

Posted on

Goldman Sachs paid tax at an effective rate of 0.6% in the year to 30 November 2008. If that is replicated this year that means that their tax freedom day fell on 2 January, but since most people weren't around then, I thought I'd mention it now.

And yet the Adam Smith Institute argue that Tax Freedom Day is on June 2nd.

Why do they spread such misinformation which so obviously ignores the fact that the tax burden is spread so unfairly in society?
