The most accurate (arguably) income comparison tool on the island has been updated.
Once again, we take the data points from the latest Iras Annual Report 2008/2009 and produce the following tool that stack you up against all resident taxpayers.
In our view, the data from the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore is much more comprehensive than data from elsewhere, not least because Iras has direct access to your auto-inclusion employers, CPF, CDP, properties, donations and what-have-you (all of which are probably used to verify and double confirm what you declare, if you need to declare anything at all).
Without further ado, enter your annual income for YA2009 and see how well you rank against all resident taxpayers in Singapore:
As you can tell, if you earn the same income as last year, you would have dropped a few notches. A $100,000 income would put you at the 81.4th percentile last year, but the same amount will only earn you a 79.9th percentile placing this year.
