How close are you to the evil 1%?

December 8, 2011

Note: Based on 2009 tax year filing data, the Internal Revenue Service says an adjusted gross income, or AGI, of $343,927 or more will put you in the top 1 percent of taxpayers.

The WSJ has a cool interactive … plug in your household income (which is a higher number than AGI) and it pegs your percentile.

For example, the WSJ says …

  • $100,000 puts you in the 81st percentile
  • $150,000 puts you in the 89th percentile
  • $200,000 puts you in the 94th percentile
  • $250,000 puts you in the 96th percentile
  • $507,000 puts you in the 99th percentile
