It took over 35 years though. Where did it all go? I figure about $429,000 in taxes. Maybe $390,000 housing and heating. Here are some interesting breakdowns:
During these decades I made-
1970's $28,911------------------Highest annual $7,960
1980's $292,840---------------Highest annual $38,240
1990's $431,808----------------Highest annual $58,300
2000's $545,811 (so far)-----Highest annual $76,665
