Tax tables 2010

How can you use these federal tax tables 2010 to calculate your tax liability? The tax tables 2010 provided above are included in the federal tax calculator 2010 which is also included above, and they provide the same result. You can calculate your tax liability using either the tax calculator or the tax tables. First, find the appropriate tax table based on your filing status. Once you have located the right tax table for your 2010 income, locate the tax bracket reflecting your income level. For example, a single person making $105,000 would be in the 28% tax rates 2010 bracket. Third, calculate your tax liability using the corresponding tax rate. On $105,000 income, you would pay tax of $16,781.25 plus 28% on income over $82,400, so the total would be $23,109. The $16,781.25 amount covers taxes calculated on income that falls in the 10%, 15%, and 25% brackets. The 28% income tax rate 2010 covers taxes calculated on income only within the 28% bracket.

If you like, you can confirm the income tax 2010 calculation by calculating the tax for each tax bracket. Let's demonstrate using the same example (filing status SINGLE and making $105,000 of taxable income per year after deductions and exemptions).

  • $837.50 (tax on the first $8,375 of income, taxed at the 10% rate), plus
  • $3,843.75 (tax on the income between $8,375 and $34,000, taxed at the 15% rate), plus
  • $12,100.00 (tax on the income between $34,000 and $82,400, taxed at the 25% rate), plus
  • $6,328.00 (tax on the income between $82,400 and $105,000, taxed at the 28% rate)

The total income tax 2010 will be $23,109 (rounded down). The income tax 2010 is less than in 2009 in this case.
