Example output from http://openspending.org/api/mytax?income=20000:

{
 alcohol_tax: 217.26799007444168
 explanation: [ "This household income falls between national average
income decile 3 (which has average gross household income of 17204.00,
and pays 1939.00 in direct tax, 1125.00 in VAT, 1295.00 in smoking
taxes, 317.00 in alcohol-related taxes, 182.00 in car-related taxes,
and 373.00 in other indirect taxes), and decile 4 (which has average
gross household income of 22040.00, and pays 3108.00 in direct tax,
1262.00 in VAT, 1562.00 in smoking taxes, 320.00 in alcohol-related
taxes, 243.00 in car-related taxes, and 505.00 in other indirect
taxes).",
 "Therefore, a household with an income of 20000.00 pays
approximately 2614.87 in direct tax and 3638.90 in total indirect
tax."
