WATCH: People try to explain how the budget works
With the official Budget 2016 speech fast approaching, we took to the streets of Dublin to see if Irish people could explain how the budget actually works.
Every year, the Finance Minister comes out with a number of measures which result in either more or less money in Irish worker's pockets - but do Irish people know any more than that when it comes to how the budget work?
We asked shoppers on Dublin's Henry Street to explain to us in their own words how the much-feared Budget actually works - from start to finish.
We wanted them to explain to use the processes used to determine each budget and how exactly the resulting decisions are implemented on a grassroots level.
Watch the results above.
