No one likes paying taxes—Wesley Snipes, especially—for two reasons: 1. We have no idea where our hard-earned greenbacks go, and 2. As Chris Rock said, "we don't even pay tax, they take tax!" While we can't do anything about the latter, a new web application, Where Did My Tax Dollars Go?, can help you figure out the former.
Developed by Anil Kanadangath as an entrant into Google's Data Viz Challenge, Where Did My Tax Dollars Go? asks you to input your salary along and, using data culled from WhatWePayFor.com, graphically breaks down how much money on average you pay in taxes as well as where your money goes.
It's certainly worth a look. Some findings—like how only about 3% of your money goes towards education—may surprise/infuriate you.
