    If they are providing accurate data, why does it matter? If the data isn't accurate, that's a whole different issue. I have never seen real, comprehensive data that contradicts the charts at the Tax Policy Center website.

      And I'm not the type of guy that has the time or inclanation to go sifting through IRS data and comparing it for accuracy against this organization's data.  Additionally, you can take "accurate data" and interpret it a number of different ways -- and end up confusing a number-adverse guy like me in a matter of seconds.

      For these reasons, then, it's more important for me to know who is providing me the data, than to be able to undertake the task of validating it.
