Taxable Income and Taxes Paid: 1950-2006

By Admin, November 4, 2012


A large part of personal income is not considered “taxable” income by the IRS. In the graph personal income (as calculated by the Bureau of Economic Analysis) is around 80% of GDP. This includes all employee compensation + after tax business income + rent + interest + other income but no capital gains.
