MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin Tea Party groups will hold their annual “Tax Day Rally” Satruday outside the State Capitol in Madison. Fox News contributor James T. Harris and radio hosts Dana Loesch and Vicki McKenna will be among the speakers. Luke Hilgemann, the state director of the Americans for Prosperity, said people will see a strong, energized grass-roots movement tomorrow. He said his group has gained 15-thousand members since the Tea Party movement began in 2009. The rally is normally held around the deadline for filing state-and-federal income taxes – which is on Tuesday this year. The Tax Foundation says Tuesday is also the National Tax Freedom Day – the date in which people start working for themselves, after making enough money since January first to pay all of their federal, state, and local taxes for the year. Wisconsin’s taxes remain higher than the national averages, so the Badger State’s Tax Freedom Day is four days later – April 21st. Connecticut has the latest Tax Freedom Day, on May fifth. Folks in Tennessee have the earliest. They’ve been working for themselves since March 31st.
