The good news is you’ve already got one.

This bar graph comes from Mark Perry’s Carpe Diem blog and shows both the taxes paid by quintile and the incomes for those quintiles. I believe the chart’s based on data from the Congressional Budget Office.


Also see No Country Leans on Upper-Income Households as Much as U.S. for what the OECD reported a couple of years ago (via Greg Mankiw).
