It takes an income of $636,866 a year to make you a member of the one percent in New York City.
And members of that elite group paid 47% of city personal income taxes in 2013, according to new data from the Independent Budget Office.
IBO found that 36,851 tax filers fell into the top one percent — and they collectively earned $107.5 billion, 38% of the entire city population’s income. On average, they brought in $2.9 million in 2013.
The high rollers brought in 19% of the city’s wages and salaries, but a whopping 87% of its capital gains.
They paid $3.9 billion of the $8.3 billion the city brought in in income taxes — nearly half of the total, and an average of $105,924 each.
