What is a Tax Bracket?

A tax bracket is the rate at which an individual is taxed. Tax brackets are based on income levels so that individuals with lower income levels are taxed at a lower rate than individuals with higher income levels. Tax brackets serve as cutoff points for given income tax rates; therefore, if an individual’s annual taxable income exceeds the cutoff point, that person is taxed according to the next tax bracket.
