Your Federal Tax Bracket helps
you determine your income tax rate which is the
rate you pay on your total taxable dollars earned during
the tax year. This is the net amount of earnings after
deductions have been taken.
Different tax rates are applied by portion
to determine your overall tax amount due, as
income increases into another tax bracket that portion
falling within the next bracket is taxed at that new
higher tax rate.
After all your fed tax bracket
rates are calculated for each tax bracket portion of
income, your overall average tax rate can be determined
using a tax calculator link above.

From 2000 to 2002 most fed tax brackets dropped by one percent, and
there was a new lower federal tax bracket added at the very bottom.
In 2003 most fed tax brackets got an additional cut of two percent
with the top tax brackets getting the biggest break. And you wonder
why the feds can't balance the budget...
In December of 2010, All tax brackets were frozen through 2012 at
their current rates as Congress made those tax freeze changes legal.
Had Congress not acted before the New Year, all tax brackets rates
would have automatically reverted to where they were in 2000,
meaning a big tax rate increase for everybody. So with all tax rates
temporarily frozen, all fed tax brackets were set to remain at their
levels until after the twenty twelve elections.
