This section shows the money made every year in the US, broken into five pools of about $2 trillion each. The pools are sorted by income level—the top $2 trillion is made by a small number of wealthy households (the "one percent"), while the bottom $2 trillion represents the combined annual income of the poorer half of the country.
 +
 
 +
Note: Figures are only estimates—these statistics were computed using data from the Congressional Budget Office analysis of 2007 incomes, and have been subject to the normalizations detailed below.

===Cost of electricity===

Note on methodology: these totals were calculated from an analysis of the 2007 CBO report on effective federal tax rates by income. There were some mismatches between figures on total income from various sources, and between CBO tax rates and federal revenue. The income totals here were adjusted for inflation and then scaled slightly to match federal tax revenue. This should only affect the total reported income, and not the distribution of the tax burden or the rough makeup of the quintiles.

Ambox notice.png This explanation may be incomplete or incorrect: Many items are missing from the Billions section. If you can organize the Millions, Billions and Trillions sections please do.

US household income[edit]

This section shows the money made every year in the US, broken into five pools of about $2 trillion each. The pools are sorted by income level—the top $2 trillion is made by a small number of wealthy households (the "one percent"), while the bottom $2 trillion represents the combined annual income of the poorer half of the country.

Note: Figures are only estimates—these statistics were computed using data from the Congressional Budget Office analysis of 2007 incomes, and have been subject to the normalizations detailed below.

Who # Households  % Households Typical income/year Income
The 1% 1.6 million 1.3 >$400,000 $1,397,000,000,000
High incomes 9 million 8 $150,000 - $400,000 $1,411,000,000,000
Upper incomes 18 million 16 $90,000 - $150,000 $1,553,000,000,000
Upper middle incomes 27 million 23 $55,000 - $90,000 $1,610,000,000,000
The bottom 50% 63 million ~50 <$55,000 $1,711,000,000,000
Total 118.6 million 98.3 $7,682,910,000,000

Amount needed[edit]

Type Amount Notes
Required for poverty-line income $2,602,000,000,000 This is the amount which must be set aside from each pool in order to leave $22,350—roughly a poverty-line income—for each family in that pool. If taxes cut into this region, then it forces the average after-tax income for the pool below the $22,350. (Of course, many families in this group make less than that already.)
Required for a middle-class income $4,874,000,000,000 This is the amount which must be set aside from each pool in order to leave $44,700—roughly double the poverty-line income—for each family in that pool.
Amount needed to give everyone an income over $100,000 $7,070,000,000,000 Amount which must be left in the pool to keep the average income above $100,000 (See descriptions below for details)
Amount needed to give everyone an income over $250,000 $8,836,000,000,000 Amount which must be left in the pool to keep the average income above $250,000 (See descriptions below for details)

Taxes[edit]

Type Amount Notes
State taxes $642,030,000,000 Unlike federal taxes, state taxes are regressive—the poor pay a higher percentage of their income than the rich. This is because sales taxes, a large component of state revenues, fall disproportionately on the poor.
Federal taxes $2,192,180,000,000 effective total federal taxes paid, after deductions and tax credits

Note on methodology: these totals were calculated from an analysis of the 2007 CBO report on effective federal tax rates by income. There were some mismatches between figures on total income from various sources, and between CBO tax rates and federal revenue. The income totals here were adjusted for inflation and then scaled slightly to match federal tax revenue. This should only affect the total reported income, and not the distribution of the tax burden or the rough makeup of the quintiles.

Corporate tax deduction[edit]

(Note: some of the corporate deductions are very technical, and even with the help of a technical accountant, I had trouble making sense of them. The text below is my best attempt at an English interpretation of the legalese.)

Foreign corporation income financing rules $13,680,000,000
Other $41,740,000,000 Rounded down to 41 blocks

Individual tax deductions[edit]

These are types of income, or uses of income, which the government has partly or fully exempt from tax, often to encourage some activity. This can be thought of as 'spent' tax revenue, although it's not quite that simple; there's no guarantee [that] removing the deduction would add that amount to revenue, because the presence of the deduction may be affecting taxpayers' spending habits.
