  • Description

The national survey by the Pew Research Center, conducted Feb. 18-22 among 1,504 adults, finds that about half (53%) say they pay about the right amount in taxes, considering what they get from the federal government; fewer (40%) feel like they pay more than their fair share in taxes. Just 4% say they pay less than their fair share of taxes. These views have changed little since December 2011.
