MADISON, Wis. —Rejoice, Wisconsin taxpayers! You are free! It’s Tax Freedom Day for Badger State Taxpayers.
Well, don’t get too excited. This is the day the average taxpayer has earned enough money on the year to finally pay off the pile of tax obligations of local, state and federal governments.

Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform, joins us on this edition of MacIver NewsMakers for a little perspective on the current tax climate and the changes taking shape in the Badger State. And this anti-tax man offers some sound advice for those who die.
