It is likely that different factors apply and cause the results of the
calculations to be different in your location and circumstances.
You may wish to input the factors that apply
for you into
the spreadsheet (22kB) that was used to produce the results shown in the
chart at the top of this page. If you use different factors, the
results of the calculations will be different from those shown in the chart on
this page. However, the graph in the spreadsheet in which you input your
revised factors will be updated to reflect to changes you input.
