Final Tax Plan is out - 12/15/17
The completed version of the GOP tax bill will have seven tax brackets, sources told FOX Business on Friday.
As Republicans in the House and Senate prepared to release the details of the joint bill agreed upon by lawmakers across both chambers, sources said the GOP decided to stick with a seven-tier bracket system. The rates fall at 10%, 12%, 22%, 24%, 32%, 35% and 37%. The House had initially proposed collapsing the number of brackets into just three or four, an initiative the administration supported in an effort to simplify the tax code.
While the number of federal-income brackets remains the same, the thresholds and percentages are different. Here’s a look at the new tax brackets.
