After Tax Take Home Pay

Everyone knows that when you earn $100 you don't get to take home $100. Federal, state and local income taxes along with payroll and other taxes can reduce your take home pay by probably more than you realize.

Print calculation to window

Don't get to discouraged if almost 50% of your earnings end up going to the government. The above calculator assumes that each dollar is being taxed at your top rate. In fact, a married couple who uses the standard deduction can earn $15,600 before their first dollar is taxed by the Federal government for income tax purposes. The next $14,000 would be taxed at 10%, the next 42,800 would be taxed at 15% and only earnings over $72,400 would be taxed at 25%. A married couple who uses the standard deduction and earns $75,000 would be in the 25% tax bracket but would only pay $8,401 in Federal taxes. That gives them an average Federal rate of only 11%. (If they had four kids that quality for the child tax credit their effective rate would be only 5.8%.)
