Who Are the 47% That Don’t Pay Taxes?

That 47% number applies only to federal income taxes, and does not include payroll taxes — used to fund Social Security and Medicare — or any state and local taxes. About 18% pay neither a federal income tax nor payroll taxes. But 45 states have a sales tax, so it’s nearly impossible for even low-income Americans to avoid paying at least some taxes. SOURCE

Who are the 47%?

  • The working poor.
  • The elderly.
  • The low-income.
  • Possibly Mitt Romney – we don’t know since he won’t release his tax forms.
