2011 IRS Tax Tables

2011 IRS Tax Tables

The 2011 IRS Tax tables are used when you fill out your tax return.  Usually it’s IRS Form 1040, line 44 that requires you to consult these tables.  They look intimidating but really all you need is one number from the tables.  Once you have gotten far enough through your tax return to arrive at an AGI (Adjusted Gross Income), you take that number and find it on the tax tables.  Then read across and depending on your filing status you will take your tax from the first, second, third or fourth column.

The number you get from the IRS tax tables will then be input into line 44.  It’s the amount of tax you owe.  The 2011 IRS tax tables are pages and pages because every income level is shown, in steps of $50.  But here’s an example of what they look like.
