How much % should I deduct for Federal tax from my monthly

This answer was rated:

How much % should I deduct for Federal tax from my monthly Annuity of $2500?

NPVAdvisor :

Hi,

NPVAdvisor :

The answer (the best answer) to your question really depends on two things: (1) the rest of your tax situation.

NPVAdvisor :

like how much other money you already have coming in ... if your other income puts you in the, say, 15% tax bracket, and this amount of money would also all fall into the 15% bracket (not take you into a HIGHER bracket, in other words) ... the a 15% withholding SHOULD do it

NPVAdvisor :

However there's one more thing ... is this the annuitization of an after tax annuity, where only some of the income is taxable ... or is this from, say, a pension or IRA where the total 2500 is taxable income?

NPVAdvisor :

Sorry, I just saw the second statement about the W4-P, so I'm guessing this IS a pension?

Customer:

This is from a Retirement Annuity were nothing was taxed. I will also receive income of approx. $50M this year. Normally my wife and I file jointly and fall within the 14% bracket I think.

NPVAdvisor :

OK, great, married fling jointly, standard deduction (rather than itemizing), and no dependents? (and that 2500 is on top of the 50,000?

Customer:

Married, filing jointly & itemizing with dependent. yes 2500 is on top of 50,000

NPVAdvisor :

can you ballpark your itemized deducions? (Or we can simple assume the standard deduction)

Customer:

assume the standard

NPVAdvisor :

ok just a sec

NPVAdvisor :

First here are the brackets

NPVAdvisor :

  • 10% on taxable income from $0 to $17,850, plus

  • 15% on taxable income over $17,850 to $72,500, plus

  • 25% on taxable income over $72,500 to $146,400, plus

  • 28% on taxable income over $146,400 to $223,050, plus

  • 33% on taxable income over $223,050 to $398,350, plus

  • 35% on taxable income over $398,350 to $450,000, plus

  • 39.6% on taxable income over $450,000.

NPVAdvisor :

And here's a quick projection, using 80,000 (your 50 + 2500/mo)

NPVAdvisor :























































Gross income$80,000
Qualified plan contributions-$0
Adjusted gross income=$80,000
Standard/Itemized deductions-$12,200
Personal exemptions-$7,800
Taxable income=$60,000
Tax liability before credits$8,108
Child tax credits-$0
Estimated tax liability=$8,108
Taxes withheld-$0
Tax shortfall=$8,108
NPVAdvisor :

THis assumes, the standard and no withholding

NPVAdvisor :

SO

NPVAdvisor :

your taxable income is at 60, that puts you squarely in the 15% bracket

NPVAdvisor :

and the additional 2500/month is all in that bracket

NPVAdvisor :

15%

Customer:

great news, I was thinking 10% but will go with your 15%. Thanks

NPVAdvisor :

That should be very safe, given that you itemize

Customer:

thanks

NPVAdvisor :

Your positive rating is thanks enough

NPVAdvisor :

Let me know if I can help further!
