Tax legislation is revised on a yearly basis. Tax accountants are specialized in manipulating your finances in order to declare the least taxes possible. Averages don't really mean much, as when you have capital gains/losses and retirements savings plan and other arrangements, you can be paying 10,000$ in tax one year and 50,000$ in the next (random numbers, but the point is that taxes are never the same from one year to another, especially if you are making millions like hockey players).

Anyways I don't want to get too technical, there's a reason why I decided not to specialize in taxes as an accountant, I'm quite content with Auditing.
