The Federal tax rates have been updated to the 2018 new tax tables and the tax calculator now uses the 2018 tax tables as default. To calculator your 2018/2019 tax return, simply enter your gross salary. If you wish to calculate your tax return for a previous tax year, select historic tax years from the dropdown menu. The tax calculator uses 2018/2019 State tax tables, tracking all changes to State tax tables is tricky so, if you identify a change, please let us know and we will update the 2018/2019 state tax tables.

The Tax calculator is free to use, our only request is that you provide feedback is you spot an error and share on your favourite social media platform to help us grow and maintain this free income tax tool.

2018 Tax Reforms. The Tax Form Calculator now uses the final tax tables agreed for 2018 after the 2017 tax reform proposals. You can use the Tax Reform Calculator to compare how each tax reform proposal looked in salary and income tax terms and compare each of the proposals side by side with the final confirmed tax reform tables.

Did you know we also provide individual Federal tax forms online which automatically calculate your tax deductions? We also provide individual state tax forms for specific states (inc. California and New York), we continue to add tax forms weekly and aim to provide an auto-calculating tax calculator for each tax form in each State. This is part of our ongoing project to provide a comprehensive free tax return calculator: Individual Income Tax Return. We continue to work on this project and aim to have the solution available for Jan 2019 tax calculations and tax returns. Thank you to all those who continue to donate to support this project.

We would also like to thank those who add the Tax Form Calculator to their list of Safe sites on Ad Blocking software. We are fully dependant on advertising revenue and donations. We thank you for supporting us and understanding the balance of free solutions funded by online advertising, the tax tools we provide would not be available without these solutions.

[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.
