In 2013, the rate of AFS credit use including auto-title loans is 7.0 percent (unmeasured in 2011). Households that use AFS credit products are increasingly from the middle- and upper-income ranges. The share of AFS credit users with annual household incomes above $30,000 rose from 42 percent to 48 percent between 2011 and 2013, and the share of households with annual incomes of at least $75,000 increased from 7 percent to 11 percent over the same period.

Who Benefits from Asset-Building Tax Subsidies? (Fact Sheet / Data at a Glance)
C. Eugene Steuerle, Benjamin H. Harris, Signe-Mary McKernan, Caleb Quakenbush, Caroline Ratcliffe

Tax subsidies for asset building totaled $384 billion in 2013, with the vast majority going toward subsidizing homeownership and retirement saving. This factsheet summarizes distributional estimates of major tax subsidies for homeownership, retirement saving, and higher education. Low- and moderate-income households benefit very little from these subsidies. For example, about 70 percent of the mortgage interest deduction and employer-sponsored retirement plan subsidies go to the top 20 percent of tax payers while the bottom 20 percent receive less than one percent. Upper-income households, which likely require less incentive to save, may merely shift assets from unsubsidized to subsidized accounts.
