Very nice interactive chart [1] from Ritchie King showing our effective tax rates of 2012 versus past years.

Note that the top bracket used to be 2X what it is today.

If you your taxable income and filing status, you can see how much your total tax rate would’ve been in different eras (The NYT [2] did something similar)
