given that
Taylor, age 18, is a dependent of her parents. For 2018,
she records the following income:
\$4,400 wages from a summer job,
\$1,885 interest from a money market account,
and
\$2,100 interest from City of Boston bonds.
For 2018, the standard deduction amount for an individual who may be claimed as a dependent by another taxpayer cannot exceed the greater of \$1,050 or the sum of \$350 and the individual’s earned income.
Thus standards deduction will be 4400+350 = 4750
Net unearned income will be 1885+0-2100 = 0. Since bond interest is exempt it will not considered. Hence net unearned income will be Zero
Taxable Income = 6285-4750 = 1535, thus her tax liability will 950x10% = \$ 153.5
