PHOENIX – If you want to plan more than year ahead, the federal tax brackets for 2019 are out — and there aren’t any unexpected jolts.

“(These) really don’t hold any surprises for the average family,” said John Balitis, an attorney with Phoenix law firm Jennings Strouss.

“(There are) minor adjustments to each bracket … based on standard inflation figures.”

The IRS recently released the 2019 brackets, and they aren’t much different that the figures you will use to fill out your 2018 taxes in the coming months:

Per to the IRS, here are the 2019 brackets, by taxable income:

  • 10 percent: $9,700 and below (single); $19,400 and below (married filing jointly); $13,850 and below (head of household).
  • 12 percent: $9,701 to $39,475 (single); $19,401 to $78,950 (married filing jointly); $13,851 to $52,850 (head of household).
  • 22 percent: $39,476 to $84,200 (single); $78,951 to $168,400 (married filing jointly); $52,851 to $84,200 (head of household).
  • 24 percent: $84,201 to $160,725 (single); $168,401 to $321,450 (married filing jointly); $84,201 to $160,700 (head of household).
  • 32 percent: $160,726 to $204,100 (single); $321,451 to $408,200 (married filing jointly); $160,701 to $204,100 (head of household).
  • 35 percent: $204,101 to $510,300 (single); $408,201 to $612,350 (married filing jointly); $204,101 to $510,300 (head of household).
  • 37 percent: $510,301 and up (single); $612,351 and up (married filing jointly); $510,301 and up (head of household).

The standard deduction will be $12,200 (up from $12,000 for 2018) for single filers, $24,400 ($24,000 for 2018) for married joint filers, and $18,350 ($18,000 for 2018) for heads of household.
