Total Federal, State, and Local Tax Burden as a percentage of income:
Top 1%: 30.0%
Bottom 99%: 27.9%
Bottom 20%: 16.2%
Generally, 30% > 27.9% > 16.2%. You can look it up.
And the difference between those in the top 1% (incomes over $1,254,000 who pay 30%) and those in the rest of the top 10% (incomes from $140,000 to 1,254,000 who pay about 31.2%) is because of State and local taxes, not Federal.
In FEDERAL taxes, the top 1% pays the most, at 22.1%.
