428-438 – • Tax Policy Center, Historical Top Tax Rate.  

I just posted this on FB this afternoon, 

Just curious... in your opinion, what should the top marginal tax rate be on "the rich"? In 2010, there were "only" 250,000 filers who had income greater than $1 million. They already provide 20% of ALL federal tax revenue, while the bottom half of all filers provide 0%. What should their rate be? Select your answer, then look at the accompanying historical chart. Love to know your thoughts…

• 2008 Tax Burdens (the share of the total federal tax revenue)  1% = 38%, 3% = 50%, 5% = 59%, 10% = 70%, 25% = 96% (the bottom 75% provide just 4% of all federal tax revenue).

• The 250,000 people who made over $1M last year pay 20% of all tax revenue. (Just one in 1200 people).

• 2008:  top 1% = $380,354, paid 38.02% of all federal income taxes, but earning just 20% of all adjusted gross income.

612-623 – Calls – What should the highest tax rate be?  What should your tax rate be?  What do you think those people would do if they decide their taxes are raised too high?  Just as business owners are fleeing the rust belt, New York and California, and flocking to Texas, Tennessee, and Nevada, wouldn't those who provide the jobs simply move too?  And, if there's no where to move to in the United States, then how about Costa Rica, the Bahamas, the Caymans, or Australia?
