The Total Tax Insights calculator makes it easier to learn something every taxpayer should know: what you’re paying in taxes. The approximate figure of your tax bill generated with more than 20 taxes to consider may surprise you. But it also may help you think differently about a lot of things – from where to live and what kind of car to drive to whether you should change jobs or shop differently. It’s great information to have as you work toward better tax and financial planning and decision-making.

PROVIDENCE — Ordinarily, this would be the week for filing your tax returns and paying what you owe. After all, the usual April 15 deadline is just two days away.
