All business income "passed through" to the owner's personal income tax return. $300,00 per year or whatever the current "top 1%" income threshold is a relatively small number, one that is well exceeded by hundreds of thousands of small businesses throughout the US.

    Jealousy. Such an ugly emotion, Mo. But it does look good on you.


    I'm not surprised that you were unaware why and how the owners of so many small businesses end up in the top 1% definition. You've never tried to do anything like that.

    The last complete survey shows that roughly 6% of the estimated 27 million small businesses in the US yield owner income that puts them in the top 1%. That is 1 million 600 thousand small businesses.

    How about that?

    Thanks for the afternoon laugh! Christ can any of you people read? Do any of you read anything other that politically biased BS?

    One posted makes a comment about the top 1% in the US and another Mensa candidate replies about the top 1% in the world.

    None of you understand the difference between marginal and effective tax rates...least of all GURPS and Gilligan.

    None of you seem to understand the difference between wealth and income either.

    Guess it is too much to ask that you look up actual data or read something other than politically biased BS (yes right wing propaganda is just as false as left wing propaganda---GASP!!!)....you all are so consumed by "snowflakes" and twisting yourselves into knots in support of Nazis and white supremacists while trying not to actually sound like you are supporting Nazis and white supremacists.

    .
    Hey moron...what, amongst all of your incoherent babbling changes the simple fact that there is a definition of the "Top 1%" income threshold (around $300,000, give or take a few) and that those top 1% pay about 50% of all income taxes?

    What, in your spew, changes the simple fact that the pass-through income from their businesses puts roughly 1.6 million owners of small businesses in the "Top 1%" income category?

    Go away fool.

    Why would I be jealous of you having a huge ego and needing to brag about #### that even if true ain't all that impressive?

    I do just fine for myself and don't need to brag about it, particularly to people I don't know.
