Reader “mdb002” suggested that I post a grand total of taxes paid year to date as part of the weekly tax bite. It’s a great idea. I’ve updated the relevant posts.
The latest total — $7,218.18 — is listed in the tax bite for Week 7.
The year-to-date totals going forward will include the bigger updates from the monthly tax bite when relevant because the monthly entries include figures that aren’t listed in the weekly totals, such as income taxes and communications fees. I get that information only every other week or monthly.
I’ll also include year-to-date totals in the entries for monthly tax bites.
