Income from Interest and Dividends by AGI
Interest and dividends are a large portion of income for high-income households, but not for others. In 2016, interest and dividends were more than 20% of adjusted gross income (AGI) for those with AGI over $10 million, compared to less than 3% for those with AGI under $100,000.
