Welcome to Dollarology! Our goal is to help people clarify their options when making financial decisions. To that end, we offer the following:
Wise Finances for Ordinary People
The Dollarology Blog was born out of one family's efforts to make wise financial decisions. We started it to share what we’ve learned, pass on ideas, and offer encouragement and inspiration. There are many good sites out there for personal finance, but what we hope makes Dollarology special is our ability to bring clarity to complicated decisions. We do the research and crunch the numbers, then let people explore the results in a way that is lucid and accurate. Our goal isn’t to offer simplistic advice (“Buy a house for the mortgage interest deduction!”) so much as to illuminate your choices, so your decision, whatever it is, is informed. Our motto is, Run the numbers!
Our State Tax Comparison table can help you estimate your taxes if you lived in any of the 50 states or Washington, D.C., including income tax, sales tax, property tax, and gas tax. It accepts inputs such as annual income, family size, property value, and annual expenses. If you are thinking of moving, knowing the tax burden of different states can give you a better idea how your move will affect your finances.
