Since Mitt Romney has yet to fully disclose his effective federal tax rate, the best we have to go off of is this statement from 1/17/12: "It's probably closer to the 15 percent rate than anything."

1.) The Median net worth of an American family is $77,300.
2.) Mitt Romney's net worth is estimated to be somewhere in the neighborhood of $200 million.
So, how does your tax rate stack up?
