In the state rankings, the Sunshine State came in at #8. According to the SmartAsset study, you’d need an annual household income of $678,800 to earn your spot in Florida’s 1% club in 2023. That’s just slightly above the national average of $645,600. And the average Florida tax rate for this group is 25.23%.

It’s much better to become a member of the Florida 5% club. A Florida resident must earn at least $243,600 to be in the top 5% with an average tax rate of 22.34%.
