On pages 99 and 100 full time filer data is broken into 5 income groups that each represent 1/5th of all full time filers and the total amount of revenue lost from these deductions is shown for each income grouping.
I have extracted that data and created two graphs in a one page MS Word file on my SkyDrive HERE, and also embedded the file below:
- Of the 60% of ALL full year filers (those with incomes below $43,000) those who claimed these deductions received $79 million /12.2% of the total 2009 revenue lost ($647 million) to the State of Oregon from these deductions for full time filers.
- Of the 20% of ALL full year filers (those with incomes above $75,000) those who claimed these deductions received $394 million/61% of all of the total revenue lost to the State of Oregon from these deductions for full time filers.
- This means that the bottom 60% of filers by income accounted for only 12.2% of revenue lost from these deductions while the top 20% by income accounted for 61% of the revenue lost from these deductions and this also means that...
- ..The TOP 20% of all full year filers accounted for nearly 5 times the lost revenue from these deductions when compared to the BOTTOM 60% of all full time filers. ($394M/$79M=4.99).
