How to use the advanced tax calculator
[23rd May 2016]: Additional Medicare Tax added for those who exceed the annual earning threshold. This feature is integrated with all of our tax calculators. We have also provided a dedicated FICA calculator for those who just wish to calculate / audit this specific tax element.
[09th May 2016]: New Comment Feature. We have added a new comment feature to certain pages to allow you to provide direct feedback. This is for those who prefer not to contact us directly or if you want to leave any comments about the site or the tax and finance tools we provide. Be nice please..
[04th May 2016]: New site design. As a final push to maintain this site as a free resource we have redesigned the layout and added some new tools. Our aim is to increase your user experience and encourage those who use ad-blocking software to turn it off or add us to the white list in your ad-blocking software. The increasing use of ad-blocking software by our users has meant that we are struggling to sustain the tax Form Calculator as a free resource and are currently considering either charging for the service or scrapping the site completely. If you care about the web and like free tools, please don't block the ads!. We know ads can be annoying but this site is free to use, help us keep it that way.
[29th March 2016]: IRA and 401k calculators integrated into the Tax Calculator. Select advanced, use settings 'I am between 50 and 65 years of age' as relevant and 'IRA and 401K Calculator' inputs to calculate 401K and IRA as part of your tax return calculation. More info on using the IRA / 401K Calculator here.
[02th March 2016]: For our Canadian users: We are working on a comprehensive Canadian Federal, Province and Non-resident Tax Calculator, we expect to have all elements fully integrated by the end of April (print, save, etc.). Take a look and let us know your thoughts, as always we tweak our calculators design, look and outputs to suit our communities needs. We will be providing a similar interface for the US Tax Calculator this year pending further community feedback.
[10th October 2015]: 2016 Tax tables integrated into the Tax Calculator.
The Federal Tax calculator is updated to include the latest Federal tax rates for 2015-16 tax year as published by the IRS.
Calculate your total tax due using the tax calculator (updated to include the 2016 tax brackets). Deduct the amount of tax paid from the tax calculation to provide an illustration of your 2016 tax refund.
Looking for a quick snapshot tax illustration and example of how to calculate your tax return? Go to our Salary Tax Illustrations and select an annual salary assessment for an instant tax illustration with tax breakdown and Medicare example.
The following updates have been applied to the Tax calculator:
Note: Deaf, Blind or Disabled and Qualified Disabled Veterans are currently active for Michigan only. If you would like these activated for your state, please leave a message on our tax forums, ideally you should also confirm the allowance amount for your State as well.
This federal tax calculator is as good as the feedback, your support, requests and bug catches help to improve the accuracy of the tax calculator for all.
This tax calculator aims to balance ease of use with transparency of tax calculation but is provided for illustration only. Remember that you should always seek professional advice and audit your tax return
If you would like us to add anything information to the Tax Calculator or have a comment (always good to have positive feedback! also good to have 'this could be better if...' type feedback too.), please contact us, thank you..
