You pay it on virtually everything you earn. You pay it on almost everything you do. And after the Budget you'll likely be paying even more of it. But how would you feel if you knew exactly how your various taxes were spent? As the Dail debates a Tax Transparency Bill which aims to give Irish taxpayers an annual account of how their taxes are spent, George Lee meets Irish families wondering where their tax money goes and what they get in return. For example, what was mother-of-two, Tanya Claxton's €35,000 in stamp duty spent on?
