If you’ve generated a personalized tax receipt, you know how your tax dollars were spent. But what if you could choose to allocate your tax dollars differently, in a way that reflects your personal budget priorities?
In three easy steps, estimate how much your state, city, congressional district, or county paid towards federal programs in projected fiscal 2014, choose what you would provide instead, and share your plan.
We generate trade-offs using enacted budget numbers for projected fiscal year 2014 as published by the White House Office of Management and Budget and costs published by various federal agencies. The localized numbers are calculated using our best approximation of individual income taxes paid by geographic area. These numbers are estimates only. For a full explanation of our sources and methodology, see the notes and sources page.
