Tax! Tax! Tax!

You can't wake up in the morning without paying a tax. That first cup of coffee equals a sales tax. For the day, that's 6 cents.

You get in your car to go to work. There's that annoying reminder of the car tax. Break it down by day, an average of $1.

At least once a week, you'll pay at the gas pump. At 37 cents a gallon, that's a daily average of 95 cents.

Federal taxes, state taxes, social security, the list goes on and on for taxes at work. For me, the daily average is $6.27.

Home from work, but not home free from taxes. As the lights go on, the TV goes on and the phone rings, that equals up to another 50 cents.

There's only one escape. We all know the old saying. There are only two things for sure in life, death and taxes. But even then, someone is going to pay.

My daily tax average equals $8.78. That's a grand total for the year of $3,072.40. Hmm, and I'm not even getting $2,000 back.
