Federal Income Tax Brackets

Your federal income tax bracket tells you at what rate your income (your taxable income) will be taxed. Tax rates often vary by tax year and may be different for each filing status. The rate of taxation is applied only to your taxable income. You can determine your tax bracket and tax rate for 2014 and for earlier tax years using the tax bracket calculator below.
