However, there is a now a website that provides a new paycheck calculator that shows American just how much they pay now, and will expect to pay next year if all new taxes go into affect. The fine programmers at Paycheck City have created a neat application and graph that will allow visitors to see the difference between their 2012 taxes, and those projected for 2013.
