The 2021 tax season is here and now is the time you start planning your taxes. For Texas residents, the filing deadline for your 2020 federal tax return is now Tuesday June 15, 2021. You should plan your taxes in advance to avoid the rush during the last days and prevent potentially costly mistakes. It also remains important to stay updated about any changes to the tax code or tax guidelines, so that you do not attract unwanted attention from the IRS.
A progressive tax bracket means that you pay a set tax rate for a specific range of income. For the tax year 2020, the tax rates are generally the same, but there are some modifications to specific tax brackets. Let’s take a closer look at the income tax brackets for the year 2021.

Breakdown of Next Year’s Marginal Tax Rates

The IRS updates individual tax brackets to adjust for inflation. Currently, there are seven individual income tax brackets: 10%, 12%, 22%, 24%, 32%, 35%, and 37%. The brackets mentioned above are marginal brackets meaning that different portions of your income will be taxed at different rates.

Single and Married Filers

The taxable income for different tax brackets is different for individual filers and married couples filing jointly. For example, this year’s highest tax bracket of 37% will be applicable to individual taxpayers with an income more than $523,600 and $628,300 for married couples filing jointly. Also, the standard deductions are different for individual filers and married couples filing jointly.

I would like to thank Mr. Nick and his staff for the superb help that I received from them. My IRS problem was resolved quickly and efficiently. It took 2 visits to convince me that I was over my head. I thought that I could call the IRS, appeal my tax notices and settle on a payment plan on my own. After many phone calls to the IRS, waiting sometimes more than 4 hours with no resolution to speak of, it proved to be extremely difficult and stressful. Revisiting Mr. Nick was a huge wake up call. My account was reviewed, and a payment plan was established with the IRS within a week. I will be forever grateful to the staff who worked on my case and especially to Lorna who listened to me vent while going through this painful process.

I cannot say enough good things about Nick and his team. When I first met with Nick he was up front, honest, friendly and efficient. When I worked with one of his attorneys, Eric B, I was just as pleased. All of the staff there are nice and very helpful. I wish I hadn't waited so long to get help with my issue. Over 6yrs I tried getting through and getting anywhere with the IRS and hardly made any progress. I know this may not be the case for all, and even I thought it would take longer than it did, but 3mos and they had my situation straightened out. I still can't believe it. Thank you thank you THANK YOU for all that you did for me. This is a huge burden gone out of my life now thanks to you. If anyone needs help out there, I know you may not want to shell out more money to get their help but it may just save you in the long run.

During a time in which competent, professional service at a fair price seems to have disappeared, Mr. Nemeth and his team are a refreshing breath of fresh air.From my first phone call to the final settlement of our case with a non-responsive IRS, they under-promised, over-delivered and were in constant courteous contact to make sure we knew exactly what was happening and where we stood.I hope to never need their services again, but, should I receive another friendly letter from the IRS...I know who to call!
