West Virginia's Tax Freedom Day is earlier than two of its five neighbors, Virginia and Maryland. Virginia has the ninth-latest date of all states, falling on April 21, while Maryland's April 23 date is the fourth latest.
Kentucky, Ohio and Pennsylvania all have earlier dates. Kentucky's April 8th date is the second earliest in the country, while Ohio's April 14th date is ninth earliest.
Pennsylvania celebrates one day earlier than West Virginia, on April 19.
This year's national Tax Freedom Day is April 18.
"This year, Americans will work five days later than in 2012 to pay all of their taxes," said Tax Foundation economist William McBride.
"The total tax bill at all levels comes to approximately $4.2 trillion, or 29.4 percent of their total income," said McBride. "That means Americans will pay more in taxes in 2013 than they will spend on food, clothing and housing combined."
However, this year's national date is not the latest to have been calculated.
The foundation says that was May 1, 2000, and it meant Americans paid one-third of their total income in taxes that year. By comparison, in 1900, Americans paid only 5.9 percent and Tax Freedom Day was pinpointed at Jan. 22.
