Tax Portrait of USA

From the IRS website for Tax Year 2001:

Top 1 percent Adjusted Gross Income - $292,913
Top 10 percent AGI - $92,754
Bottom 10 percent AGI break - $5,121

Median AGI - $28,117

Most Americans with professional jobs substantially overestimate the wealth of their fellow Americans.
