Pie Chart Flyers - Where Your Income Tax Money Really Goes

FY 2019 Pie Chart Flyer - Where Your Income Tax Money Really Goes


The new edition of the War Resisters League's famous "pie chart" flyer, Where Your Income Tax Money Really Goes, will analyze the Federal Fiscal Year 2019 Budget.  (FY 2019 is 1 October 2018 - 30 September 2019).  Perfect for Tax Day leafletting, as a focus for forums and panels and workshops and more!

The Trump administration released its budget proposal for fiscal year 2019 on February 12, and the flyer is in production. We expect to be able to ship in early - mid March.  

Each year War Resisters League analyzes federal funds outlays as presented in detailed tables in "Analytical Perspectives" of the Budget of the United States Government. Our analysis is based on federal funds, which do not include trust funds - such as Social Security - that are raised separately from income taxes for specific purposes. What federal income taxes you pay (or don't pay) by April 17, 2018, goes to the federal funds portion of the budget.


Leaflet with this flyer year-round and on Tax Day, April 18, 2018, and throughout the Global Days of Action on Military Spending, April 14 to May 3rd, 2018.
