Tax Brackets 2010

What are the Tax Brackets for 2010?

The federal income tax in the United States is a progressive model where those individuals who earn higher wages are taxed at a higher percentage and vice versa. The tax brackets represent the divisions at which tax rates are implemented; these rates will change based on a given fiscal year in accordance with inflation and the macro-economic standing of the country. In essence, the tax brackets represent cutoff values for an earner’s taxable income—incomes past a certain point will be taxed at the next available tax bracket.

Additionally the tax rates will fluctuate for individuals who file separately or for those couples who file joint returns. The tax rate is dependent on income, meaning the amount of money an individual earns from his or her job; however, the tax rates will also fluctuate given the delivery of tax deductions, tax credits, and the status of the filing.
