That’s the conclusion of Paul Gregory at Forbes:
The IRS publishes detailed tax tables by income level. The latest results are for 2009. They show that taxpayers earning an adjusted gross income between $100,000 and $200,000 pay an average rate of twelve percent. This is below Buffett’s rate; so she must earn more than that. Taxpayers earning adjusted gross incomes of $200,000 to $500,000, pay an average tax rate of nineteen percent. Therefore Buffett must pay Debbie Bosanke a salary above two hundred thousand.
Sounds like Debbie is going to take a hit if Obama ends the Bush tax cuts for top earners. But here’s the question that interests me even more than her exact salary. Given that Bosanake has become a campaign surrogate for the President on the issue of her earnings and taxes, why hasn’t anyone in the media demanded answers to these questions? Seems pretty relevant to the discussion to me.
