    Boggles the mind. If the chart is for single filers, "That means a single filer who made $343,927 or more in 2009 is in the top 1 percentile" the those earning less than $33,396 are in the bottom half.

    Notice those number are PER return with no difference made between the single guy making $335,000 and the married woman with 3 kids making the same amount.

    So, still not a clear picture.

    It's as clear as the phrase "who are the top 1% earners." There is no proviso made for life circumstances, merely income earned.
