Frequently Asked Questions

Why do the rich pay a lower tax rate than the middle class?

The rich pay lower tax rates than the middle class because most of their income doesn't come from wages, unlike most workers. Instead, the bulk of billionaires' income stems from capital, such as investments like stocks and bonds, which enjoy a lower tax rate than income.

Are there going to be tax cuts for the rich?

(While Furman does believe that the Trump Administration’s 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act benefits the wealthy more than the rest, he believes the progressive tax rate curve is little changed as a result.) When most Americans talk about their “tax rate,” they often talk about what they pay in federal income taxes.

Is the tax system unfair to the middle class?

The study, from the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy, found that “virtually every state’s tax system is fundamentally unfair, taking a much greater share of income from low- and middle-income families than from wealthy families.”

Do you pay higher taxes if you are super rich?

Not necessarily. While the U.S. tax code is structured so that high earners pay a higher tax rate, the ultra-wealthy often take advantage of laws that enable them to lower their effective tax rate.
