Tax Time is upon us all. Kids may not understand exactly how tax dollars are spent… often neither do adults! This info-graphic offers some perspective.
What We Pay For is a site that breaks down the federal budget into easier-to-understand chunks. Click on those individual fund items for more details. You can even enter a salary figure and the site will calculate your estimated taxes and allocate a dollar amount to each of those fund areas. The figures are calculate for 2009 (a year ago), 2010 (the tax years kids’ parents are working on now), and 2011 (the most recent budget figures for the current year).
