Forbes: Taxing The Rich: The Evolution Of America’s Marginal Income Tax Rate [Infographic] (April 26, 2021)

Forbes has published an article, “Taxing the Rich: The Evolution of America’s Marginal Income Tax Rate [Infographic],” which discusses the marginal income tax rate and its trends from the early 1900s to the modern day using a line chart graphic. The article begins as follows:

The plan would be offset by nearly doubling the capital gains tax for people earning more than $1 million per year while the top marginal income tax rate would be raised from its present 37% to 39.6%.
