(1) Calendar year.
(2) Includes both filing and non-filing units but excludes those that are dependents of other tax units. Tax units with negative adjusted gross income are excluded from their respective income class but are included in the totals. For a description of
expanded cash income, see
http://www.taxpolicycenter.org/TaxModel/income.cfm
(3) The income percentile classes used in this table are based on the income distribution for the entire population and contain an equal number of people, not tax units. The breaks are (in 2015 dollars): 20% $22,823; 40% $44,550; 60% $79,661; 80%
$141,303; 90% $207,758; 95% $294,348; 99% $720,886; 99.9% $3,672,221.
(4) Includes tax units with a change in federal tax burden of $10 or more in absolute value. Estimates are static and do not assume that taxpayers would adjust their investment portfolio and pay down their mortgage balance if their tax benefit from
mortgage interest was reduced.
(5) Interest would be eligible subject to current law limits ($1,000,000 of debt on a primary residence or second home, and $100,000 in home equity loans).
(6) Interest would be eligible up to a maximum of $500,000 of debt on a primary residence, second home, and/or a home equity loan.
