SOI-Tax Stats-Top 400 Individual Income Tax Returns with the Largest Adjusted Gross Incomes
"This release contains four tables which contain information from the Top 400 Individual Income Tax Returns for each of Tax Years 1992 through 2009. Table 1 contains frequencies, money amounts, and average dollar amounts for the major income, deduction, and tax credits reported as part of the Form 1040 (U.S. Individual Income Tax Return). Table 2 shows ranges of marginal tax rate for the various statutory rates (including the alternative minimum tax rates) that were in effect for Tax Years 1992 through 2009 while Table 3 shows the range of average tax rates up to 35 percent and over, computed as total income tax divided by adjusted gross income. The data in Tables 1–3 are based on the individual returns with the largest adjusted gross income reported each specific year shown and do not necessarily reflect the same taxpayers over the 18-year time period reflected. Therefore, Table 4 is available to present the number of times an individual return appeared among the 400 largest adjusted gross incomes for each of tax years 1992 through 2009."
