Between

But Not Over

Base Tax

+ Rate

Of the Amount Over

$137,050
$208,850
$26,637.50
28%
$137,050


 

 

 

Michael and Micaela Mitchell's Estimated Taxes for 2009

  = Base Tax + (Rate x Amount Over)
  = $26,637.50 + [.28 x ($155,000 - $137,050)]
  = $26,637.50 + (.28 x $17,950)
  = $26,637.50 + $5,026.00
  = $31,663.50

Assuming Michael and Micaela made the same amount from the previous year, their 2009 tax bill dropped nearly $500, using the 2008 income tax rate table for joint married taxpayers.

 


 

 

Example #2

Steve Sidley is a widower whose wife died in 2009. He has combined 2009 TAXABLE INCOME of $210,000. His income falls between:

Between

But Not Over

Base Tax

+ Rate

Of the Amount Over

$208,850
$372,950
$46,741.50
33%
$208,850

 

 

 

 

Steve Sidley's Estimated Taxes

  = Base Tax + (Rate x Amount Over)
  = $46,741.50 + [.33 x ($210,000 - $208,850)]
  = $46,741.50 + (.33 x $1,150)
  = $46,741.50 + $379.50
  = $47,121.00

Steve Sidley also experienced tax savings from the previous year, assuming he and his wife earned the same amount last year. His total tax dropped over $900.00 over last year, using the 2008 income tax rate table for joint married taxpayers and qualifying widow(ers).
