For Example:

Let’s assume you are a single taxpayer:

  • If your taxable income for 2009 is not over $8,350, then the tax rate is 10%
  • If your taxable income for 2009 is over $8,350 BUT NOT OVER $33,950, then the tax rate is $835 “PLUS” 15% of the amount over the $8,350. Means, if your taxable income for 2009 is $24,000, then your income tax is: $835 + [15% x (24,000 – $8,350)].
  • and on, and on.

    Typographical error on the Single Taxpayer table:

    The line that reads:
    Over $33,950 but not over $82,250, tax is $850 plus 25% of amount over $33,950
    Should read:
    Over $33,950 but not over $82,250, tax is $4675 plus 25% of amount over $33,950
