How do you know what tax bracket you are in?
You can calculate the tax bracket you fall into by dividing your income that will be taxed into each applicable bracket. Each bracket has its own tax rate. The bracket you are in also depends on your filing status: if you’re a single filer, married filing jointly, married filing separately or head of household.
Why are married couples taxed less?
