    Your question is irrelevant. To make sense, you need to ask how the taxes collected from them compare to their share of the overall wealth of the country.

    The top 1% pay about 37% of all federal income taxes.

    The top 1% controls about 42% of all of America's wealth.

    Wait. Your question doesn't make sense. Michael Moore and others in his income bracket don't collect taxes.

    Um, none of it. IRS agents collect taxes, not the people paying taxes.
