  •  That's for an individual, not couples (Which makes (0+ / 0-)

    a huge difference), and pretty much matches my number, though I didn't include payroll taxes, since when you say "I make $250k / year", you generally are excluding payroll taxes.

    You're definitely right about interest rates, though with that extra 75k over the years, they still could have pretty easily managed a 15 year mortgage.  Of course, there's also the deduction on mortgage interest, which would have helped.

    Clinton era taxes were a bit higher, too, especially for couples, so would have to tack that on to their income tax from 11+ years back, too.
