Hi! My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you!
If you file jointly, the income
tax brackets in 2015 are as follows: i) taxable income between $74,901 - $151,200 is taxed at a 25% marginal rate
; and ii) taxable income between $151,201 - $230,450 is taxed at a marginal rate of 28%. So, because your taxable income is already at $159,000, the $30,000 would be taxed at a marginal tax rate
of 28%. You can find all the brackets at the following link: http://www.forbes.com/sites/kellyphillipserb/2014/10/30/irs
