OVERVIEW

These tax rate schedules are provided to help you estimate your 2022 federal income tax. TurboTax will apply these rates as you complete your tax return.

 Key Takeaways • Tax rate schedules can help you estimate the amount of tax that you will owe when you prepare your taxes. • There are different tax rate schedules based on your filing status, with seven different tax rates for each filing status in 2022 and 2023. • As your taxable income increases, the percentage of tax you pay on your income can increase if you move into a higher tax bracket. • Each year, the tax brackets are adjusted upward effectively reducing the amount of tax that is paid on a specific amount of taxable income.

Use the tables below to find your 2022 and 2023 tax brackets.

### What Are Tax Brackets?

Each year, the federal government sets tax brackets that include unique tax rates for different levels of income that individuals use when filing their taxes.

These tax brackets determine how much you’ll pay on your taxable income for that year.

Each year, tax brackets are adjusted based on inflation. In many countries, including the United States, tax brackets are progressive, which means the more you earn, the higher your tax rate will be.

### How Do Tax Brackets Work?

Tax brackets divide your taxable income into different brackets or ranges, applying a different tax rate to each bracket your taxable income falls under. This means you won’t pay taxes at your highest tax rate on all of your taxable income.

Let’s take a look at an example.

Let’s say for the 2022 tax year (filing for 2023), you earned a taxable income of \$90,000, and you filed as single. Based on the tax brackets, you’ll fall under the fourth tax bracket for taxable incomes between \$89,075 and \$170,050, which has a tax rate of 24%. However, you won’t pay a 24% tax rate on the entirety of your \$90,000 taxable income.

• 10% on the first \$10,275, which is \$1,027.5
• 12% on amounts over \$10,275 and under \$41,775, which is \$3,780
• 22% on amounts over \$41,775 and under \$89,075, which is \$10,406
• 24% on amounts over \$89,075 and under \$170,050. However, your taxable income is \$90,000, which means only \$925 will be taxed at 24%, which is \$222

Overall, your tax liability for the 2022 tax year will be \$15,436 (\$1,027.5 + \$3,780 + \$10,406 + \$222).

This means that, although you fall under the 24% tax rate, your effective tax rate is about 17.8%, which is the average tax rate of the total taxable income you’re required to pay.

### What Is a Marginal Tax Rate?

When you hear someone refer to themselves as falling under the 24% tax bracket, for example, this refers to their marginal tax rate. Marginal tax rate is different than the effective tax rate and refers to the highest tax bracket your last dollar of taxable income falls under.

For example, if you’re married and filing jointly for 2022 taxes with an taxable income of \$85,000, you’d fall under the 22% tax bracket even though a majority of your taxable income (\$83,550) falls under the 12% tax bracket.

### How Can You Get Into a Lower Tax Bracket?

If your taxable income is on the cusp of tax brackets, you may be wondering how to get into the lower tax bracket to pay fewer taxes on your income. There are a few ways individuals can fall into lower tax brackets, including tax credits and tax deductions.

Tax credits offer dollar-for-dollar deductions on your overall tax liability, while tax deductions reduce the amount of your taxable income.
