According to the Tax Foundation, a nonpartisan organisation, the average American pays an average tax rate of 12.60% percent on their income as of 2008. According to th…e figures released from the 2007 US Census the median earnings of men who worked full time, year-round were $45,113 and women were $35,102. Arithmetic provides: Tax for Men: $5684.24 Tax for Women: $4422.85 According to figures based on the average reported income of Americans, as tabulated by data collected from income tax returns in 2008, the median income of all people, both men and women, is $31,987. Tax on Average: $4030.36 Please consider that this was in no way calculated by an economist or an actuary with accredited math skills, also that this only represents income tax and not other forms of tax and that the figures available from the sources mentioned are not always compatible. However I believe that this answer may be marginally more educational than the former one which stated the unfounded and likely erroneous figure of $10 million.
There were 131,113,969 returns filed in 2004. Of those who filed, 42,545,501 (32.4%) had zero tax liability. This is estimated to increase to in excess of 40% in 2009. A filer… can represent an individual, a household or in some instances a small business in the form of a proprietorship. Contrary to a quip previously posted that only the poor pay taxes, the top 1% in terms of adjusted gross income (AGI) account for 39.9% of income tax collected in 2006. The top 25% (AGI > $64,702) account for 86.27% while the bottom 50% of filers by income don't even add up to 3% of collections. - BB From the Tax Foundation: In 2004, a record 42.5 million tax returns - one-third of all returns filed - had no income tax liability because of the available credits and deductions in the tax code. This is a 42 percent increase in the number of zero-tax filers in just four years. In addition to these zero-tax filers are the 15 million individuals or households who do not earn enough to file a tax return. Overall, nearly 58 million taxable households are outside of the income tax system. These findings raise serious questions about the future of the U.S. income tax system. Are any future tax cuts, or even tax reforms, possible when the lion's share of the tax burden is increasingly borne by a shrinking pool of taxpayers who - at least on paper - appear to be "upper-income"? And will the expanding pool of non-payers demand even higher income taxes? http://www.taxfoundation.org/research/show/542.html
The IRS has a ten year statute of limitations to collect taxes, generally. This ten year clock starts running when the tax is originally assessed (when you file a return…). I say generally because there are a lot of things that can stop that ten year clock from running. Simply put, if there are any circumstances that prevent the IRS from collecting the clock stops. This can include filing bankruptcy, filing certain appeals with the IRS, filing a law suit against the IRS, submitting an Offer in Compromise, etc. Even being out of the country for more than six months stops the clock (no sense in running to Mexico).

Why does the government asks employers to withhold tax money from each paycheck instead of requiring taxpayers to pay a full years taxes all at once?
First, even many, many of those people who had withholding from paycheck throuh the year, and then find they are a little short of what they ultimately owe (for whatever… reason - other income, good investing, claim to have too many exemptions on withholding, etc.) have a great deal of trouble getting even those small sums to pay the tax. They are - like so many - perpetually broke and can't/don't save money. They would be broke even if they had more money, always will be. (They would spend the money they need to pay taxes...but they need that money to py taxes...where will it come from?) And of course, the government needs the income through the year too...it pays it's bills all the time, not just annually.
You do not have a set percentage amount that each taxpayer would pay annually in taxes. The tax bracket percentage amounts change for each taxpayers amount of taxable income… that they end up having to use to determine the correct amount of their federal income tax liability after the federal income tax return is completed correctly down to the line on the 1040 federal income tax return that says taxable income. Then you would know the amount of your federal income liability for the year and would be able to determine your percent that is being collected from you from your income for the tax year.

Yes it is possible that a fourteen year could be required to file a federal 1040 income tax return and could possibly have a federal income tax liability after the 1040 income… tax return is completed correctly.
If you earn a paycheck, then some of that money goes to taxes.
It only cost the average taxpayer a few pounds a year; it is worth it. Say there are about 40 million taxpayers in Britain, divide 88 million by it, and you have £2 and 20…p, if you go by £176 million, and divide by 40 million taxpayers, you get £4 and 40p! Not a lot to spend for something that is vital to our nation's pride, image, and government. So, the answer: around £3.
any one thats old enough to work and get a paycheck as of social security
