How to calculate dollar figures from income quintiles?

I work for a Las Vegas newspaper and we have the income quintiles for Clark County, Nevada (American Community Survey, 5-year estimate, 2009-2013) based on aggregate income of a household.

3.75% bottom fifth

9.50% lower middle

15.36% middle

23.07% upper middle

48.42% top fifth

B19082 Shares of aggregate household income by quintile

Is there a way to get the actual dollar figures?

Getting closer...but still looking for the income RANGE for each quintile, not the average.
