Here's a quote from November 2003
$586 million for UN peacekeeping. Our current period assessments (through September 30),
representing about 27 percent of the budgets, amount to $621 million.
$253.2 million for the UN Regular Budget*. Our calendar year 2003 assessment, representing 22 percent of the UN budget, is approximately $341 million, of which $229 million has already been paid. We expect to pay the remainder as soon as the fiscal year 2004 appropriation is enacted.
$52.5 million for the War Crimes Tribunals. Our calendar year 2003 assessments, representing about 25 percent of the budgets for the two tribunals (former Yugoslavia and Rwanda), amount to $57 million. We expect to pay the remaining $4.5 million balance shortly.
$5.5 million for design costs for the Capital Master Plan. This is our total calendar year 2003 assessment, which represents 22 percent of the total Capital Master Plan budget for 2003.
*$24.2 million relates to the balance of our calendar year 2002 assessment and $229 million relates to part of our calendar year 2003 assessment.

Here's a link to who's paid, how much and who hasn't...interesting figures
Honor Roll 2003
Only Germany has paid more than a 100 million...and Japan paid a whopping 279 million, but no one matches the US...at 341 million...
According to a UN site, the amounts the various countries must pay as dues are based on GNP with a minimum of 1% of the over all UN budget ( I think that is what they were saying but it was a little unclear )
