Percentage of Canadian Federal Income Tax by Income Percentile

Update 3: Welcome SDA readers (lets all test my unlimited bandwidth quote on my hosting package!)

Update 2: Fixed… now with population distribution AND income %

Update: It’s wrong (sort of).  The original % are of returns not income.  Working on a fix (it’s worse than this!).

I have been wanted to generate this for a while but SDA finally got me off the couch.  SDA gets results!

Notes:

  • 2009 data
  • watch the reference tables – they duplicate some income brackets
  • The split is really Bottom 52% Top 48% and the others are pretty close

The income cut offs and number of returns (again approximate) are:

  • 746,000 Canadians paid $0 in taxes
  • 48% = <$35,000 (14,560,000 tax payers)
  • 52% = $35,000 (10,400,000 tax payers)
  • 38% = $80,000 (2,562,000 tax payers)
  • 28% = $100,000 (1,416,000 tax payers)
  • 17% = $150,000 (526,000 tax payers)
  • 11% = $250,000 (188,000 greedy rich bastards!)
