(RoyalPatriot.com )- For the tax year 2023, the IRS is making many adjustments to the tax law. The changes increase the standard deduction and the level at which tax rates kick in.
According to reports, the likelihood of a recession is rising as data on high inflation in January suggests the Federal Reserve will likely tighten monetary policy even more.
As recently as last month, it looked as if the Fed could stay clear of danger, with Fed Chairman Jerome Powell seemingly on track to lead the economy from a recession while also pushing down inflation. There is less optimism about that prospect presently.
The income threshold for the next tax band is increased each year by the inflation rate. This year’s adjustment, however, is more than typical due to the significant increase in the cost of living. Eggs, milk, and bread have all had price increases at the supermarket.
Reports show earnings above $578,000 for singles and $693,000 for couples will be subject to the 39.6% top marginal tax rate in 2023, an increase of 7% from 2022. Similarly, the standard deduction for married filers would increase to $27,700, and the deduction for single filers will increase to $13,850, both increases of nearly 7%.
The most significant cut to the standard deductions since 1985 means that residents can allegedly keep more of their income off their tax returns and pay less in taxes overall.
The income thresholds begin at $10,275 and go up to $539,900. It has been reported by USA Today that the income thresholds for married couples filing jointly will be between $20,550 and $647,800.
As of this year’s tax filing season, filers will find themselves subjected to the newly implemented tax rates.
