1. Married filing jointly
2. Married filing separately
3. Single

1. Income Tax = \$5,934.50

Explanation;

 \$60,000 - \$1,800 \$58,200 \$58,200 - \$12,400 \$45,800 \$45,800 - \$39,475 \$6,325 \$6,325 * 22% \$1,391.5 \$1,391.5 + \$4,543 \$5,934.50

From Tax Shedule 4,543 + 22 % of amount over \$39,475.

2. a) Married Filing Jointly.

(75,475 - \$19,400) = \$56,075 (\$56,075 × 12%) = \$6,729 (1,940 + \$6,729)= \$8,669

b). Married Filing Separately

(75,475 - \$39,475 ) = \$36,000 (\$36,000 × 22%) = \$7,920 (\$7,920 + \$4,543) = \$12,463

c). Single

(\$75,475 - \$39,475) = \$36,000 (\$36,000 × 22%) = \$7,920 (\$7,920 + \$4,543) = \$12,463

(\$75,475 - \$52,850) = \$22,625 (\$22,625 × 22%) = \$4,977.50 (\$4,977.50 +\$6,065) = \$11,042.50
