Hi. My name is Eva and I will be happy to help you.
What do you mean, "blended" Tax Rate?
Do you mean progressive?
Here are the tax brackets.
If you are single, for instance, your first 9.700 of your taxable income will be taxed at 10%, income between 9.701 and 39,475 will be taxed at 12% and so on.
Being in 24% tax bracket, it does not mean that your entire taxable income is taxed at 24%. Some income will still be taxed at lower tax rates and certain capital gains are capped at 15% for instance.
You will probably get the same result. The tax tables are set by the IRS and all softwares must use the same calculation. You may be $1-2 f due the rounding.
