And each side spins that figure to their own advantage thus also being lying POSs! There appears to be no agreement on the figure - surprising to say the least.
Well, there's TOTAL agreement that not all Americans pay taxes. EVERY SINGLE AMERICAN should be paying federal taxes, no exceptions. This fake railing against the rich is nothing to political fodder for the ignorant:
"The top 20% of taxpayers paid 78% of federal income taxes in 2020, according to the Tax Policy Center, up from 68% in 2019. The top 1% of taxpayers paid 28% of taxes in 2020, up from 25% in 2019."
The Tax Policy Center said 107 million households, or 61% of taxpayers, owed no income taxes in 2020. That's up from 76 million, or 44% of taxpayers, in 2019.
