2 Answer

  • Aaron Priest, single, taxable income 165,000

    1) Earned income tax level: Over 160,850 but not over 349,700

    2) base amount : 39,149

    3) 33% of the amount over 160,850: 165,000 - 160,850 = 4,150

    4) 4,150 * 33% = 1,369.50

    5) 39,149 + 1,369.50 = 40,518.50

    6) monthly withholding: 40,518.50 / 12 = 3,376.54

  • Answer:

    #1) Over 160,850 but not over 349,700; #2) 39,149; #3) 160,850; 4150; #4) 33; 1369.50; #5) 40518.50; #6) 3376.54

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Aaron earns $165,000.  This is between $160,850 and $349,700.

    The base amount for this level is $39,149.  

    The amount of $160,850 is 165000-160850 = $4,150.  

    Multiplying this amount by 33%, 0.33(4150) = $1369.50.

    Adding this to the base amount, 1369.50+39149 = $40,518.50.

    Computing this monthly, 40518.50/12 = 3376.541667 ≈ $3376.54.
