2014 Tax Brackets

December 02, 2013

Every year, the IRS adjusts the federal tax brackets for inflation. This prevents "bracket creep" where inflation causes a taxpayer's income to be pushed into a higher income tax bracket even though the taxpayer has earned no additional income. The income tax brackets and rates for 2014 are in Table 1 (below).

In addition to adjusting the income brackets, the IRS adjusts more than 40 other provisions for inflation. To see the 2014 levels for some of the major tax provision, click here.
