Once you’ve gathered all your receipts, filled out your 1040, and made a last minute dash to the post office, check out our Connecticut Taxpayer Receipt to see how your income tax dollars are put to work by state government. It provides an overview of the relative distribution of tax dollars across the various government functions covered by the state’s General Fund.
Also, check out my colleague Wade Gibson’s recent op-ed in CT News Junkie on how taxes build our state and our nation. This tax season, it’s important that we take stock of the valuable public goods and services our tax dollars help support – and how these make Connecticut a better place to live, work, and raise a family.
Happy Tax Day!
