North Dakotans and Minnesotans take longer than residents of most other states to pay off their tax burden to all levels of government.

It takes the average North Dakotan 115 days, or until April 25, to pay off his or her taxes, which is not far behind the national average of 111 days, or until April 21, which is named Tax Freedom Day, according to the Tax Foundation.

When income earners have paid off their tax burdens in the Tax Foundation's calculations, it means they've made the amount of money equal to their total federal, state and local government taxes.

And Minnesota is close, too, with its residents paying off their tax burden by April 29, on average.

North Dakota and Minnesota are far behind Louisiana, where residents have their taxes paid off on average by March 30, according to the Tax Foundation.

Mississippi residents come next with everything paid off by April 2 on average. They're followed by residents of South Dakota, Tennessee and Alabama.

The state where residents take the longest on average to cover their tax burden is a tie between New Jersey and Connecticut on May 9.

They're followed by New York, California, Minnesota and Massachusetts.
