Note: Based on 2009 tax year filing data, the Internal Revenue Service says an adjusted gross income, or AGI, of $343,927 or more will put you in the top 1 percent of taxpayers.
The WSJ has a cool interactive … plug in your household income (which is a higher number than AGI) and it pegs your percentile.
For example, the WSJ says …
- $100,000 puts you in the 81st percentile
- $150,000 puts you in the 89th percentile
- $200,000 puts you in the 94th percentile
- $250,000 puts you in the 96th percentile
- $507,000 puts you in the 99th percentile
