Comparing Income, Corporate, Capital Gains Tax Rates: 1916-2011

Due to popular demand, I have updated my 2010 graph on top marginal tax rates. In addition, during this year's tax season, I will be selling copies of my Top Marginal Tax Rates graph as a tabloid size 11"x17" poster.  

FYI, your marginal tax rate is the rate you pay on the "last dollar" you earn; but when you view the taxes you paid as a percentage of your income, your effective tax rate is less than your marginal rate, especially after you take into account the deductions and exemptions, i.e. income that is not subject to any tax.
