PostSubject: 2010 Marginal Tax Brackets   9/19/2010, 21:03

Below are the marginal tax brackets for 2010. Tax rates progressively increase as income increases. However, the increasingly higher tax rates apply only to the income in each range, which is called a tax bracket. Also, the tax rates apply only to taxable income. Various adjustments and deductions, including the standard deduction and personal exemptions, all lower a person's taxable income. Taxable income is almost always less than your total income.
Capital gains may be taxed at different tax rates. Capital gains tax rates are calculated separately. The rates below are what we call ordinary or marginal tax rates. They are ordinary rates in distinction to the lower rates imposed on capital gains. They are marginal in the sense that these rates apply to the next dollar earned.

Note: These tax rate schedules are provided for tax planning purposes. To compute your actual income tax, please see a Virtual Accounting Specialist.

How to read these tax rate charts. First, find your filing status. Second, find your income level. A single person making $50,000 would be in the 25% tax bracket, for example. On this income, the person would pay tax of $4,681.25 plus 25% on income over $34,000. The $4,681.25 amount covers taxes calculated on income that falls in the 10% and 15% brackets. The 25% amount covers taxes calculated on income only within the 25% bracket.

You can use these tax rates to figure out how much tax you will pay on extra income you earn.
  • For a taxpayer in the 25% tax bracket, extra income will be taxed at that rate until the taxpayer reaches the next tax bracket.

  • You can use these tax rates to figure out how much tax you will save by increasing your deductions.

  • A taxpayer in the 28% tax bracket will save 28 cents in federal tax for every dollar spent on a tax-deductible expense, such as mortgage interest or charity.
