F. Scott Fitzgerald’s tax returns

An interesting article, thanks to Balko.
For most of his working life, Fitzgerald was one of the “evil rich”, at the upper 1% of income earners, paying a hideously extortionate effective tax rate of 5.5%.

It would be instructive to compare these returns with those of John Harbison from around the time of the premiere of his opera The Great Gatsby.
