President Obama is keeping his promise to make sure you can easily see where your taxes are going.
Here’s how it works: Enter a few key pieces of information, and the Taxpayer Receipt gives you a breakdown of how your taxes are spent on America’s priorities, like education, veteran benefits, and health care. This year, the tool is designed to work across devices, so you can use the tool on your phone or tablet as well as your laptop or desktop computer.
Enter your income tax; the total amount of federal income taxes for 2014. This amount should be on your income tax return, line 11 of Form 1040EZ or line 55 of Form 1040.
