|2009 AGI (Adjusted Gross Income)||Percentile Rank|
|less than $32,396||Bottom 50%|
|more than $32,396||Top 50%|
|more than $66,193||Top 25%|
|more than $112,124||Top 10%|
|more than $154,643||Top 5%|

This data comes directly from the Internal Revenue Service. A link to all of the Statistics of Income (SOI) data can be found on the IRS website.
I have also come across an interesting article on Kiplinger.com that further analyzes the IRS data. From this information, they conclude such facts as those making over $343,927 (the top 1%) account for 37% of all the taxes paid. Does anybody have some further insight on this statement?
So, now you have the data. Where do you rank?
