Grannysoo, I'm guessing that is the difference between "Income Before Taxes" $63,091 and "Average Annual Expenditures" $49,638. (Obviously left out (by a government agency) becasue it would take up the big part of the circle. (Just my opinion))

Taxes are accounted for (maybe not income taxes or FICA, etc.). They are in every number in the graphic. Some categories may even be taxed more than once.

I think they are dreaming with the health insurance cost- I know ours is double that a year, plus some.

That was mentioned on the site I got it from. Theory is it is out of whack because the medical insurance paid for by an employer would not be included in the graph as medical expense since it wasn't paid by the employee. You know, if an employer pays for all your medical insurance you don't have any medical expenses. That sort of thing.

Yes there was a time when that would have taken half the pie chart but beans were 5 for a dollar then.

Ad valorem taxes alone would eat up half this amount each year but hey, we got ourselves a $30,000 water trough so whose complaining.
