I'm trying to figure out the 2015 tax bracket tax of a gross

Customer Question

I'm trying to figure out the 2015 tax bracket for income tax of a gross income of 66,000
JA: The Accountant will know how to help. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.
Customer: trying to modify childsupport and I only have the gross income of my husband. I need to figure out based on that income, what his federal income withholding would be. The monthly gross is 5528, so the income tax on that figure
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Accountant should know?
Customer: so a married person in 2015 at 66,000 would be at what tax rate
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Accountant about your situation and then connect you two.

The issue is that there is no flat tax rate - but a part of income is not taxed, another part is taxed at 10%, another part at 15% etc.
So - if you are filing a joint tax return - and your gross income is $66,000 - all from wages.

Assuming no dependents - standard deduction - no other deductions or credits -

We need to subtract

standard deduction - $12600

personal exemption (two persons) $8000

taxable income - $45,400

regular tax $5,888

social security and Medicare tax - $66,000 * 7.65% = $5050

Let me know if that helps.

monthly I have figured to 5528 gross per mo, I need federal income tax, soc. security and medicare, and lastly state industrial insurance for Washington state
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I was told was 5 dollars
Expert:  Lev replied 4 months ago.

So a rough estimate
$66,000 (gross) - $5,888 (federal income tax) - $5050 (employment taxes)
= $55062 (net income - after tax)

If you are looking fro monthly amount / 12 = $4588.

Is that what you are looking?
