2011 Income Percentiles
Posted By Jim On 06/07/2011 @ 7:09 am In Personal Finance | 8 Comments
Every year, following tax season, the Tax Policy Center releases a litany of statistic driven tables and charts. One of the most fascinating, at least to me, is their listing of Income Breaks . The table basically lists where all the percentiles start and end for all tax units, single filers, married filing jointly, and head of household filers based on their models. This is just one of the many charts they have for 2011 . It’s not an exact science and you can argue the accuracy of the models but it’s still an interesting dataset to play with.
Here are the deciles (dollar value for when that decile ends):
|Decile||All||Single||MFJ||Head of Household|
|1st, 2nd half||$200,026||$87,149||$298,736||$77,703|
Here were some things that intrigued me:
Finally, check out this average effective federal tax rate  chart that lists the tax rates on the various income groups and filing statuses. I’ll let you draw your own conclusions (again, this data is based on their microsimulation model).
