The Total Tax Insights calculator was developed by the AICPA as a public service to give taxpayers a clearer picture of the types and number of taxes they pay throughout the year and the estimated amounts of each. By linking federal tax rules with the country’s abundant and varied state and local tax conventions—including more than 20 of the most widely applied taxes—this first-of-a-kind online tool fosters greater public understanding of taxes and provides key insights to enhance one’s financial well-being.
The Total Tax Insights calculator is the first tax calculator that estimates a person’s tax obligation based on place of residence across the country. It’s customized for each state, and for the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
Taxpayers access the calculator at totaltaxinsights.org and enter, at a minimum, the county and/or city where they live, marital status, number of dependents and the exact or estimated amount of their federal adjusted gross income. The calculator then delivers a comprehensive view of the number and variety of taxes they pay, as well as their estimated annual tax obligation.
