    Where does the code add together the user's input?

    Isn't that addressed under declare variables?

    I'm not sure I understand what that means. What is the "that" you are talking about?
    Can you post the line(s) of code where the input is obtained from the user and added together and then displayed?

    int result = taxpmt1 + taxpmt2;

    This line is under //declare variables (the line above is what I meant by that, sorry, will try to be more explicit)

    and outputLabel.setText("YOUR TOTAL TAX PAID IS" + result ); is the last line.

    I just fixed it!! I added the line "result = taxpmt1 + taxpmt2;" under the line (Action event e)

    Thanks for making me think!!
