The income tax created more criminals than any other single act of government. Barry Goldwater

Ever wonder how our tax dollars are allocated in Virginia? Well, this chart shows you just how it's budgeted. Virginia's state government budget is divided into an operating budget and a capital budget. The operating budget includes expenses to run the daily activities of government. The capital budget includes the one-time costs of building, improving, or repairing government facilities. The budget of the Commonwealth for the 2014-2016 biennium includes $95.5 billion for operating expenses and $1.5 billion in capital outlay expenses. So, education gets the most of the budget with Health and Human Services next. Discouraged by the amount allocated for public safety? You're not alone
