TAX LIABILITY:

Part 1

Taxable income = AGI - Standard deduction = 68996-12200 = \$56796

Taxes = 4543 + (22%*(56796-39475)) = \$8354

Tax liability 2019 = taxes - dependent credit = 8354-500 = \$7854

Part 2

Taxable income = AGI - standard deduction = 49240-24400 = \$24840

Taxes = 1940+ (12%*(24840-19400)) = \$2593

Tax liability 2019 = taxes - dependent credit = 2593-500 = \$2093

Part 3

Taxable income = AGI - standard deduction = 14392-18350 = \$0

Tax liability 2019 = \$0

Part 4

Taxable income = AGI - standard deduction = 59226 - 18350= \$40876

Taxes = 1385 + (12%*(40876-13850)) = \$4628

Tax liability 2019 = taxes - dependent credit = 4628-500 = \$4128
