Poland marks Tax Freedom Day

Friday, 9 June, was Tax Freedom Day in Poland. It marks the day on which Poles worked enough hours and earned enough income to pay all their taxes for the year.

Last year Tax Freedom Day fell on 15 June, and in 1994 it was 1 July.

Poles pay a similar amount in taxes to other nations but Poland should work on more efficient spending. Poles pay double for some services by, for instance, contributing through taxes to public healthcare and education while at the same time paying for private health insurance and private schools and tutoring.
