Federal and CALIFORNIA income tax question. Someone told me

Customer Question

Federal and CALIFORNIA income tax question. Someone told me that 2013 taxes are going to be higher than 2012 taxes. Is that your understanding? If so - please explain why I can expect higher taxes in 2013 versus 2012. I am self employed by the way.

Robin D :

Hello and thank you for using Just Answer,
For 2013, the tax rate for social security increases to 12.4%. The additional Medicare tax also applies to Self Employment income.

Robin D :

The tax rates for ordinary income have also been changed for 2013. The rate would depend on filing status and income level.

You can use the following link to see your rate by filing status and income:
