Here's what taxes will look like for America's highest-paying jobs

Some of America’s best paying jobs can expect to see higher taxes under the new Republican tax plan.

According to analysis from the Tax Policy Center, most income groups should find reduced taxes on average. In 2018, 80% of taxpayers should receive a tax cut, averaging about $2,100, the analysis found. However, the tax cuts as a percentage of after-tax income would benefit the higher-income groups the most. What’s more, about 5% of taxpayers should expect to see their taxes increase by about $2,800 in 2018. That percentage of taxpayers with an increase is expected to rise to 9% in 2025 and 53% in 2027 compared with the current law, the analysis found.

To get a picture of what American taxpayers might see next year, David Luther, the content marketing editor at career insights website Zippia, crunched data for more than 800 professions to come up with some estimates.

For this undertaking, Luther used New Jersey exemptions as a baseline because it’s a population-dense state that has fairly high state taxes. He also made the assumption that the individual is unmarried and childless and a homeowner with a house valued at three-times the median wage for the occupation.
