Deductions.
Our effective tax rate is lower than someone making 1/3 of household income or something like that. But as we make good money, we can afford stuff like a house with lots of interest payments to deduct and we can afford to give our money to charities.

Of course once you get above the 406k and start making six billion dollars a year, you pay at the same rate.

As I said, there are many ways around paying taxes if you make the effort: How to Pay No Taxes - Businessweek

I, for example, made about $150k last year. My taxable was about $60k. A good chunk of that money was per diem, which is not taxed, a lot goes into investments that don't get taxed, I have 2 properties where the interest doesn't get taxed, etc. and I'm a small fry. If you have accountants and investors that know what they're doing, they can make you pay practically nothing.

One of the greatest challenges faced in running any successful web forum is locating a sufficient number of videos of an orange exploding in slow-motion, filmed at 62,000 frames per second.

Is anyone watching the TV series Galavant? It's pretty amusing. The very first episode had a cameo appearance of Weird Al Yankovic as a singing monk (alert Joe Perez).

ABC's Galavant - Trailer - YouTube
I remember seeing that trailer, and thinking "cool, I have to watch that," and then totally forgetting all about it.

Yeah, think about it.

Most people earning in those upper brackets donít pay regular income tax. They pay at a capital gains tax rate. people making less dont have any capital gains. The upper tax brackets also donít have 15% of their income taken by the federal government as payroll tax before they even start calculating what they need to pay in income tax or what deductions they can take.

It is not so simple at all. The people paying the highest percentage of their income to the federal government are typically people making a little over 100k as an individual or 200k filing jointly. Duel income households with no kids earning 200-250k most always pay the highest percentage of their income when you include everything such as payroll tax and deductions. There only option to avoid tax is get in debt up to their eyeballs in mortgage interest.
