This app estimates the portions of sales and property taxes residents pay that are available to use for services such as public safety, parks and public works.  You will be asked for your gross income and age, and using the Bureau of Labor Statistics consumer expenditure tables, an estimate of your sales tax consumption is calculated.  In addition, you will be asked to input your assessed property values.  Then, the amount of property tax paid is calculated based on our current rates.
