How Much Time Do You Spend At Work Just To Pay Taxes?

I can't think of many people who sit around and say, "You know, I really love paying taxes." However, when you break out your day into bite-size pieces like this, paying taxes makes hella sense.

For example, I'll gladly spend four minutes a day contributing to the men and women who fought for my freedom, but it's a bitter pill to swallow thinking about the 23 minutes I spend paying for that big ol' mess of a war we got into in the first place.

FACT CHECK TIME! Our fact checkers want me to point out that this infographic is based on a dual-income family with one child where both parents work 7.5 hours a day to earn a combined $107,225. Of course, not all Americans earn that much money (most don't), and not all taxpaying Americans are in dual-income households, either. So depending on your family and income situation, these numbers vary.
