Example #1

Rita Murray, a married taxpayer filing her own return, has 2006 TAXABLE INCOME of $76,000. Murray's income falls between:

Between

But Not Over

Base Tax

+ Rate

Of the Amount Over

$61,850
$94,225
$12,020.00
28%
$61,850

 

 

 

Rita Murray's Estimated Taxes

  = Base Tax + (Rate x Amount Over)
  = $12,020.00 + [.28 x ($76,000 - $61,850)]
  = $12,020.00 + (.28 x $14,150)
  = $12,020.00 + $3,962.00
  = $15,982.00

Assuming she earned the same last year Rita's tax bill dropped almost $200.00 compared to last year (when she was using the 2005 income tax rate table for married filing separate taxpayers).

 

 


 

 

Example #2

Joe Fiddleton, a married man who is filing his return independently of his wife, has TAXABLE INCOME of $158,000. His income falls between:

Between

But Not Over

Base Tax

+ Rate

Of the Amount Over

$94,225
$168,275
$21,085.00
33%
$94,225

 

 

 

 

Joe Fiddleton's Estimated Taxes

  = Base Tax + (Rate x Amount Over)
  = $21,085.00 + [.33 x ($158,000 - $94,225)]
  = $21,085.00 + (.33 x $63,775)
  = $21,085.00 + $21,045.75
  = $42,130.75

For 2006, Joe also experienced a lower tax bill, assuming that his taxable income remained the same. His total tax dropped over $300.00 from his 2005 tax return (when he was using the 2005 income tax rate table for married filing separate taxpayers).
