Article Preview: There’s an extraordinary gap between the richest and poorest in society, with the new analysis of official tax figures highlighting the extent of this issue. According to the research, if you have a pre-tax income of around £50,000, then you can count yourself in the top 10% of taxpayers. To make it into the top 1% takes more than three times as much, with the top 0.1% of taxpayers earning more than £650,000 a year. What’s interesting about these groups of highest taxpayers is their tendency to be male, middle-aged and living in London or the South East.
