An infographic regarding the history of tax rates.

WW2 max rate was crazy :ahh

yah thats pretty crazy

and what they fail to mention is that at a tax rates highest, tax revenues were generally at their lowest

Can you imagine paying a 94% tax? :lol

How the hell did people live back then? They were left with like no disposable income.

Taxe rates were adjusted for your income.

Wikipage describes it rather well

Take 1946 for example (not adjusted for inflation) here were the income and your tax rate

Year $10,001 $20,001 $60,001 $100,001 $250,001
1948 38% 56% 78% 89% 91%
