The Tax Foundation: Nearly Half of All Taxpayers Are Over 45:
Tax, Think Tank Reports | Permalink
So? This is meaningless information without the median age of the US population, which by some reports is about 40.

Is there a way to get this as an Excel spreadsheet for every year, or do a graph? I'm interested in how incomes at each age (perhaps by birthdate) change over time. I'd put average income for each group (plus the whole) into the graph as well, so I can see if we're getting a few, very rich 20-somethings (and the rest are unemployed) or something else.

The category is share of all 'tax filers', not taxpayers. There is a big difference, obviously, since 40+% of returns do not have a tax liability.

Median age is about 37.
Probably pretty few taxpaxers in the 0-17 range.
