re: Tax Reform Discussion Thread - Ray Finkle

re: Tax Reform Discussion Thread - Ray Finkle
I'm confused too. Are we talking about straight up taxable income after the 12,000 deduction for a standard filer? I took it as them saying you don't get charged a dollar on any taxable income under $12,000. then Dollar 1 rate would be 12%. I could be totally off here but that's how it reads....

re: Here are the new tax brackets in the GOP plan - Ray Finkle
Tax rate is 0% up to 12,000 for single filers. Tax rate is 12% Starting at 12,000 ending 45,000. So $3960((45,000-12,000) x 12%) is the max tax amount paid in the 12% bracket. Not 12% on 45,000 of taxable income, just on the amount over 12,000 and under 45,000. I think people are missing thi...

re: Here are the new tax brackets in the GOP plan - Ray Finkle
The standard deduction for a married couple will be $24,000. A lot of married couples won't be itemizing. Now you lose the personal exemptions but the child tax credit will increase to $1600. ...
