April 15th marks a date most Americans despise: tax day. Naturally, the Atlantic has plenty of tax-related coverage to mark the unhappy occasion. Megan McArdle has a post exploring the difference between tax rates and tax burdens. Chris Good has pieces on the Tax Day Tea Parties and what the first family owed. Max Fisher over at the Wire has a roundup of views on the politics of tax day. Derek Thompson has a several posts as well -- one about the coming tax wars, another about a tax day Tea Party poll and one more about a Gallup Poll that found 45% of Americans think their tax obligation is "about right."

On that last question, we thought it might be nice to give Atlantic readers a voice to respond: did you find your 2009 tax burden fair? Vote in the poll below, and leave a comment as well if you'd like to share some thoughts on paying your 2009 taxes.
