高所得階層に対する税金負担に関する国民の誤解と現実

一部抜粋


・世論調査によると…

Here is what the polls say about what Americans think about taxes (Gallup, Pew Research):
- 51% think they are paying too much in taxes, especially the middle and lower classes.
- Even more (63%) think the rich are not paying enough.
- 56% think the tax system is unfair, rigged for the wealthy.
- 67% think corporations are not paying enough.

Most Americans (59%) think the government ought to redistribute wealth more fairly.



・だが、実際は…

These views, based on Progressive propaganda, are wrong. Here are the facts (latest data, 2014, 2015):
- The top 10% of taxpayers account for 47% of adjusted gross income (AGI) yet they paid 71% of all income taxes and they pay at the highest rate.
- The top 1% (only 1.4 million returns, 2014) account for 21% of AGI, yet they paid almost 40% of all income taxes.
- The top 400 taxpayers alone are responsible for 2.3% of all income taxes.
- The bottom 50% (income) of taxpayers pay only 2.75% of income taxes.
- The bottom 75% pay only 14% of income taxes.
- The average tax rate for the bottom 50% was only 3.5% and the average rate for the top 1% was 27.2%.

If you taxed away all AGI of those making $1 million and more ($1.455 trillion), it would run the government for 4.6 months (2015 data) and then it would be gone.
