Who we are, tax-wise

The Tax Foundation has a fascinating new publication titled Putting a Face on America’s Tax Returns: A Chartbook. Some of the charts present facts that are contrary to what liberals and progressives want us to believe about income in America. A sampling:

  • The Income Tax Burden Is Very Progressive
  • The Tax Burden Has Grown More Progressive Over Time
  • The Number and Percentage of Filers Who Pay No Income Taxes Has Reached Record Levels
  • The Top 1 Percent’s Share of Income Has Fallen to 1997 Levels
  • The Gains of the Top 1% Don’t Come at the Expense of Other Americans
  • America’s Income Gap Is Really an Education Gap
