Tax tables 2011

tax tables 2011 How do you use these federal tax tables 2011 to calculate your tax? The tax tables 2011 provided above are included in the federal tax calculator 2011 which is also provided above. These federal tax tables 2011 listed above provide the same result as the federal tax calculator. You can calculate your tax liability using either the tax calculator or the tax tables 2011. In the first step, you need to locate the appropriate tax table based on your filing status. Once you know the correct tax table for your 2011 income, then you locate the tax bracket reflecting your income level. For example, if you were a single person making $125,000, then you would be in the 28% tax rates 2011 bracket. And lastly, you need to calculate your tax using the corresponding 2011 tax rate. So, on $125,000 income, you would pay tax of $17,025.00 plus 28% on income over $83,600. The total would then be $28,617. The $17,025.00 figure covers taxes calculated on income that falls in the 10%, 15%, and 25% brackets. The 28% income tax rate 2011 covers taxes calculated on income only within the 28% bracket.

You can confirm the income tax 2011 calculation by figuring the tax for each tax bracket. We can demonstrate the concept using the same example (filing status SINGLE and making $125,000 of taxable income per year after deductions and exemptions).

  • $850.00 (tax on the first $8,500 of income, taxed at the 10% rate), plus
  • $3,900.00 (tax on the income between $8,500 and $34,500, taxed at the 15% rate), plus
  • $12,275.00 (tax on the income between $34,500 and $83,600, taxed at the 25% rate), plus
  • $11,592.00 (tax on the income between $83,600 and $125,000, taxed at the 28% rate)

The total income tax 2011 on income of $125,000 will be $28,617. The income tax 2011 is less than in year 2010 in this case.
