Government – Taxes and Spending

Discussing taxes in class? Check out the TaxJazz – The Tax Literacy Project web site, the project of a law professor at Tulane.

Where do our taxes go? That answer can be found at USAFacts (“Our nation, in numbers.”) While government financial data is a major focus, it also covers demographic information (“Who are ‘the people’?”) It uses the four missions of government, as outlined in the preamble to the Constitution, as an organizing framework. Steve Ballmer (with an impressive list of partners) is behind the project.
