It's the easiest and most accurate way to file your tax returns for both federal and state.

The federal tax brackets are broken down into seven taxable incomes and filing status. The percentages are: 10%, 12%, 22%, 24%, 32%, 35% and 37%.

It is good to remember that moving up into a higher tax bracket does not mean that all of your income will be taxes at the higher rate. In actuality only the money that is earned within a particular bracket is subject to the corresponding rate. Please see the table below.
