Federal Taxpayer Receipt

In an effort to be more transparent, the federal government has posted a website that will allow taxpayers to see how their federal tax dollars are spent:

“In his State of the Union Address, President Obama promised that this year, for the first time ever, American taxpayers would be able to go online and see exactly how their federal tax dollars are spent. 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.”
