Income Tax: Who pays what share?

According to a study for the National Center for Policy Analysis:

–   From 1986 to 2004, the total share of the income tax burden paid by the top 1 percent of income earners grew by nearly half, from 25.8 percent to 36.9 percent.

–   Over that same time, the burden of the bottom 50 percent of earners was almost halved from 6.5 percent to 3.3 percent.
