Income Needed to be in TOP 1% in UTAH
Rich people are all the rage these days. It's like the cool thing to have a lot of money and drive really expensive cars right now. I don't know if you've noticed this but it seems like more and more rich people are popping up all over the place.
Now, in order to be in the top 1% in Utah you've gotta make $631K a year. What can you do besides play for the Jazz to make that much money? Yet one percent of our fellow Utahns are making that much cash. Unless Mitt Romney is skewing it?
Here's a good point by u/Varnu on the topic:
"A couple caveats for these sorts of things. 1) These are usually household incomes since they are based on tax returns and most high earning couples file jointly. 2) Whatever the top segment is--top 1%, top 0.1%, top 10%--the value to enter that segment and the average value within that segment are often quite different. Many reporters don't really understand the difference or they explain it poorly."
Ok, so household income means that if you have your entire extended family move into your house with you then your "household income" will skyrocket. You see what I'm saying? You could be in the 1% and that's what all of our goals should be. What else are we doing if we're not trying to get in on this new "be really rich" fad. Don't be a square.
That being said, the hardest state to get into the top 1% is Connecticut. That state requires you to make $953K. That's a joke. I hate Connecticut. Seriously they don't even have a professional sports team.
