Taxes and don't know how any of this stuff works the rates on the left-hand side they're often referred to as your marginal tax rate begins because this is. The.
Highest amount of tax you'll pay on each dollar you earn and that is you know would would be whatever tax bracket, you fall within and of course not every dollar is taxed at that rate it's like a ladder the first portion of your income is taxed at 10% the next portion, of your income is at 12 and. Then 22 24 etc you don't pay a flat 24 percent for example on all of your income that's not how it works now who. Loves investing I absolutely do you guys know that if you follow the videos on my channel talking about the long term individual capital gain rates as. You guys can see these numbers are relatively the same as what, they were but what I wanted to point out is that if your incomes low enough if you file single you can actually make $40,000 in long-term capital.

Free free free. So in 2019 that was twelve thousand dollars if your final single or married fine separates head of household was eighteen thousand and married filing jointly was twenty four. Thousand but in 2020 these amounts are slightly higher which is good which means we pay less tax right so twelve. Thousand four hundred if you file single or married filing separate and up to twenty almost twenty five thousand. Or close to twenty five thousand if you do married filing joint for those of you out there who are new, to taxes and just learning how this works the standard deduction is awesome because it helps offset your total income and it's simply the, way that works is if you let's just say you have a hundred thousand dollars in.
