This is a good read with some usefull Charts in it.

Take not of the chart involving percent of taxes actually paid with lines for the 90% 10 % and 1%

Also note where and when this was presented.

Also I found this quote of use in conjunction with the table previously noted from the mid 2000's
Indeed, the OECD finds that the U.S. has the most progressive income tax system of any industrialized country. What that means is that the top 10 percent of U.S. taxpayers pay a larger share of the income tax burden than do the wealthiest decile in any other industrialized country, including traditionally "high-tax" countries such as France, Italy, and Sweden.[13]
