Fun with Taxes: White House Wants You to Calculate Where Your Dollars Went

The White House is on a quest to make Tax Day more educational, more depressing, or both.

Enter your Social Security, Medicare, and income tax amounts, or use one of their limited income estimate options, at the administration’s handy tax calculator, which then spits out how much you paid for defense, healthcare, unemployment assistance, education, veterans benefits, environmental enforcement, embassies and humanitarian aid, our frozen space program, border security, agriculture, community development grants, FEMA, and more.
