    Taxes | PGPF Fiscal Issue Primers

    Each year, some of the revenue the federal government collects comes from various taxes. In 2012, taxpayers paid almost $2.5 trillion, which the government used to partially fund $3.5 trillion worth of spending on Social Security, health care, and other programs in areas such as defense and education. The remainder of spending was funded through deficits.

    Tax expenditures are costly: they reduce tax revenues by more than $1 trillion each year.
