2023 Federal Taxpayer Receipt

Where exactly do your tax dollars go?

The Federal Taxpayer Receipt provides American taxpayers with an itemized receipt that estimates how your tax dollars are spent by the government based on how much you paid in taxes. Enter how much you paid in taxes this year (or your best guess!) to get your receipt.

To quickly estimate your taxes, refer to Line 16 on Form 1040, use the IRS Tax Withholding Calculator, or Intuit’s TurboTax TaxCaster.

This estimate may not be inclusive of all federal taxes paid, given that in addition to individual income taxes, individuals contribute payroll taxes that fund Social Security and Medicare, and excise taxes.
