Who pays what share of this tax under the new tax law? Are the middle class and poverty-stricken shouldering the load, or the more wealthy? Politicians are unclear, but if we follow the facts where they lead us, we find that fully 87% of all taxes payed in 2018 will be payed by the top 20% of income earners.
