A federal income tax is generated on a liberal tax system, where high-income earners are taxed at a higher rate. Now let’s take a closer look at how tax brackets work.
The tax bracket aims to provide genetic tax benefits to lower-income individuals and, in return, collect more tax from higher-income individuals. Tax brackets are often indicated towards a particular income range with an associated percentage.
