I cannot really know your tax bracket or how much tax is going to comeout or what you can owe on this amount of money. For an accurate Answer, i also need to know the following:

  1. Filing status
  2. Number of family members besides your self
  3. Itemized deductions such as mortgage interest, property tax, chrity donations, etc.
  4. child care expenses
  5. child and dependent care tax credit
  6. Any 401(k) contributions, etc.

As you can see it is very complicated.

However based on the pure figure of 60,000, it would be the 25% bracket.

Just know that your actual taxable income after deductions, exemptions, and tax credits, could put you in the 10 to 15% bracket.
