IRS Tax Brackets For 2022 & 2023

Your tax bracket is determined by your income and filing status. As your income increases, so do the percentage of taxes you’ll pay. That’s because America uses a progressive tax system. You can use the IRS tax brackets provided in this post to help you estimate how much you’ll owe in taxes when you file this April, as well as the following tax season.

How to Determine Your IRS Tax Bracket

There are seven marginal tax brackets, ranging from 10% (lowest) to 37% (highest). Although your taxable income will help you identify your top tax bracket, you won’t pay that percentage on all your earnings. Figuring out your total tax is a bit more complex and takes a little math.

For example, if your total taxable income for 2022 is $102,000 and you file as head of household, your marginal tax rate is 24 percent. You won’t, however, be charged 24% on the full amount. Instead, you’ll be taxed at the following rates:

  • $14,650 is taxed at 10% = $1,465
  • $41,250 is taxed at 12% = $4,950
  • $33,150 is taxed at 22% = $7,293
  • $12,950 is taxed at 24% = $3,108

Your total tax on $102,000 would be $16,816, excluding any deductions. Using this same example, your effective tax rate (also known as your average tax rate) is 16.5 percent. This is calculated by taking the total tax owed and dividing it by your taxable income ($16,816 ÷ $102,000 = .1648).

Ways to Lower Your Tax Bill

The two easiest ways to reduce your tax bill are through the use of credits and deductions.

  • Tax deductions can reduce your taxable income, which can help keep you in a lower tax bracket and save you money.
  • Tax credits, on the other hand, reduce your overall tax bill but do not affect tax brackets.

To ensure you are taking advantage of every deduction and tax credit available to you, be sure to work with a reputable tax preparation company. At Tax Defense Network, we have nearly two decades of experience helping taxpayers prepare their personal y negocios tax returns.
