That’s how much more the top 0.1 percent of taxpayers, on average, will pay in taxes under the budget deal, according to the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center.
Folks with incomes over about $2.7 million would see their after-tax incomes reduced by 8.4 percent. They would pay 26 percent of the additional taxes imposed by the legislation.
Mostly because of the expiration of the payroll tax cut, which was enacted during the economic slowdown and is being allowed to expire, taxes will go up on 77 percent of American households under the plan.
