Tax season is just around the corner, and it's never too early to start thinking about your taxes. Whether you're self-employed or work for a company, it's important to know your tax bracket and how much you'll owe come tax time. Here are the federal income tax brackets for tax years 2022 and 2023, plus tips on how you can estimate your taxes based on your top income.

In an effort to adjust for inflation, the IRS announced new tax brackets for the 2023 tax year. The top tax rate remains at 37%, but the income thresholds for each bracket have increased slightly. For tax year 2022, the income thresholds and tax rates remain the same as they were for 2021.

There are seven tax brackets for most ordinary income for the 2022 tax year: 10 percent, 12 percent, 22 percent, 24 percent, 32 percent, 35 percent, and 37 percent. The income ranges for each bracket are as follows:

  • The 10% bracket applies to taxable income up to $10,275 for single filers, $20,550 for married filing jointly, and $13,050 for head of household.

  • The 12% bracket applies to taxable income up to $41,775 for single filers, $83,550 for married filing jointly, and $55,900 for head of household.

  • The 22% bracket applies to taxable income up to $91,450 for single filers, $183,000 for married filing jointly, and $119,950 for head of household.

You may not be looking forward to tax season, but filing your taxes doesn't have to be difficult. Here's everything you need to know to get started:

  1. Find out your tax bracket: Knowing your tax bracket can help keep as many dollars as possible in the lower brackets by reducing your taxable income.

  2. Gather your documents: You'll need all of your income statements, such as W-2s and 1099s, as well as receipts and other proof of deductions.

  3. Choose your filing status: You can file as single, married filing jointly, married filing separately, head of household, or qualifying widow(er) with dependent child.

  4. Use tax software or a tax professional: You can use tax software to file your taxes online, or you can hire a tax professional to help you file your taxes.

  5. File your taxes on time: The deadline to file your taxes is April 15th, but you can file for an extension if you need more time.
