Hey everyone, I was just wondering if anyone knows where I could get a detailed budget for Missouri? I am a Missouri resident and taxpayer and I want to know exactly where my tax dollars go. And I don't mean just a little pie chart that says "x% goes to government, x% goes to education, x% goes to "other"" I want something that is very detailed.
As taxpayers, we have the right to know where our money goes so I am on the search to find out.
I am also looking for the same type of thing for both Springfield, MO as well as for the nation. If anyone can help me out, I'd appreciate it!

Your excessive taxes paid for it (certainly not for roads), so here it is, in its full glory, in ascending order of mismanagement:


City of Springfield, MO - Budget and Evaluation Division, Finance Dept.

The Rob-Me State:

The Missouri Budget - Fiscal Year 2009

And here is a link to TOTUS' New Deal:

President's Budget

Guessing that the pdf documents herein are not detailed to level you are after? The Missouri Budget - Fiscal Year 2009 - there are budgets for State departments on right-hand side there too. Have you contacted directly to the State employees, such as found here: Office of Administration - Facilities Management, Design & Construction Or to your State representative?

Have you googled for the Springfield and US budgets w/o success too?

Default On-Line information...budgets

Not something I would normally look up, but since you asked I took a look.
It looks like it might be fairly easy to see. I think I've read that you can buy a copy of the Feb. budget at the gov. bookstore.

Budget of the United States Government: Main Page

I would call the Springfield Govt. office and ask how much it would cost to get a copy and how one would go about it.
