Investigative Reporting Workshop /

With Tax Day approaching, the Investigative Reporting Workshop is featuring a chart showing that individuals, not corporations, take on the vast majority of the nation's income tax burden.

The Investigative Reporting Workshop calculated the percentages based on the Office of Management and Budget's annual tally of individual and corporate income tax receipts.

Income taxes are only one part of the government's total receipts; it also includes Social Security payments, excise taxes and other sources of income. You can find more details here from the Office of Management and Budget.
