"I have been thinking that I would make a proposition to my Republican friends... that if they will stop telling lies about the Democrats, we will stop telling the truth about them." --Adlai Stevenson, Politician
But if that makes you happy, then kick the can down the road.
I would bet the "rich" pay more sales tax on vehicles, household goods, clothes, utilities because they generally buy more expensive items.
Bet the rich pay more hotel sales tax because they stay at higher end lodging. Bet they pay more tax at when eating out because they go to more expensive places to eat.
Bet they pay higher property tax because they have higher priced homes, and more acres of land.
I would also bet that if I make more than you I pay more taxes , than you do. And I am not rich.

Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
Alexis de Tocqueville
the top one percent pay more income tax than any other similar sized group in the USA
The top one percent pay more sales tax than any other similar sized group in the USA
The top one percent pay more property tax than any other similar sized group in the USA
The top one percent pay more airport tax, hotel tax and luxury taxes than any other similarly sized group in the United States
The Top one percent pay almost all the death tax on a federal level and more of it on a state level than any other similar sized group
I do tire of those who claim this group is somehow not paying its share of taxes
