Hot Doc: Your 2011 Federal Taxpayer Receipt

In his 2011 State of the Union Address, President Obama promised that, for the first time ever, American taxpayers would be able to go online and see exactly how their federal tax dollars are spent. The receipt launched that year and, now, we’ve updated the tool to reflect current spending. Just enter a few pieces of information about your taxes, and the taxpayer receipt will give you a breakdown of how your tax dollars are spent on priorities like education, veterans benefits, or health care.
As the last Americans finish their tax returns this week to meet the April 17, 2012 deadline for filing income taxes, you can plug in your own brief tax information and see what you paid for national defense, education, space programs and more!
