Your Taxes

Where do your Federal tax dollars go? Google and Eyebeam gallery have created an interactive infographic showing where income tax dollars are going. Contrary to a lot of the hyperbole out there in the politisphere, we actually paid less money to the federal government as a percentage of income in 201o than in 1987 as these two charts demonstrate. Of course those tax dollars didn’t exactly end up in our pockets, as state and local entities have been raising taxes and fees. However, this is an interesting study and demonstration.
