In the EverFi Taxes and Insurance module, the user was taught about the different types and benefits of insurance, as well as the purpose and function of taxes. One of the first points addressed was the purpose of taxes. People often get frustrated about having large amounts of money deducted from their hard-earned paychecks, or about paying extra on simple things like clothes and food.

The truth is, tax revenue is a very necessary and important part of our economy. The government uses tax dollars for a wide variety of things, and draws nearly all of it’s income from tax sources. Tax dollars are used for social security, (to financially assist retired Americans) for Medicare, food stamps, and interest on the national debt, among other things. Tax dollars are also used in much smaller percentages for a wide variety of other government endeavors. About 1% of all tax money goes to foreign aid, and about 3.5% goes to pensions and benefits for government employees.
