The White House Wants to Tell You Where Your Tax Dollars Go

BY Nancy Scola | Friday, April 15 2011

Got your 1040 handy?

Pretty clever. (Though to be persnickety about usability, it'd be rather more spreadable if you could actually embed it at something other than 700px wide.)

Says Obama in a White House release, "The American people deserve to know exactly how and where their tax dollars are being spent. The first official taxpayer receipt will give American families the ability to see exactly where their tax dollars are going. This new tool reflects our commitment to changing the way Washington works and making government more accountable to America’s families."
