April 15th

With the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), many tax brackets, thresholds, and rates will change in 2018.

Noticeable changes to the structure of the individual tax code include the elimination of personal exemptions, the elimination of the Pease limitation on itemized deductions, and the expansion of the Child Tax Credit.

Additionally, on a yearly basis the IRS adjusts more than 40 tax provisions for inflation. This is done to prevent what is called “bracket creep,” when people are pushed into higher income tax brackets or have reduced value from credits or deductions due to inflation, instead of any increase in real income.

The IRS used to use the Consumer Price Index (CPI) to calculate the past year’s inflation. However, with the TCJA, the IRS will now use the Chained Consumer Price Index (C-CPI) to adjust income thresholds, deduction amounts, and credit values accordingly.

Income Tax Brackets and Rates

In 2018, the income limits for all tax brackets and all filers will be adjusted for inflation and will be as follows. The top marginal income tax rate of 37 percent will hit taxpayers with taxable income of $500,000 and higher for single filers and $600,000 and higher for married couples filing jointly.

Table 1. Tax Brackets and Rates, 2018
Rate For Unmarried Individuals, Taxable Income Over For Married Individuals Filing Joint Returns, Taxable Income Over For Heads of Households, Taxable Income Over
10% $0 $0 $0
12% $9,525 $19,050 $13,600
22% $38,700 $77,400 $51,800
24% $82,500 $165,000 $82,500
32% $157,500 $315,000 $157,500
35% $200,000 $400,000 $200,000
37% $500,000 $600,000 $500,000

 

Work opportunity tax credit extension 

• The work opportunity tax credit is extended through 2019.
• In 2016, the credit is also modified for employers who hire qualified individuals who have been unemployed for 27 or more weeks and increases the credit to 40 percent of the first $6,000 earned for these long-term unemployed individuals.

Sales and local general sales tax deduction extension

Permanent extension of the ability to claim an itemized deduction for state and local general sales taxes in the place of an itemized deduction for state and local income taxes.
