Tax Season Is Here

It's almost tax time again. If you missed my earlier posts on tax brackets, you can find them here:

These are tax brackets from two years ago but the idea is the same. Multiple people at the time had been saying to me that they didn't want a raise because they didn't want to be in a higher tax bracket. That is not how it works. Getting a raise will still give you more money even if it does put you in a higher tax bracket.
These posts explain how the progressive tax brackets work and how ending up in a higher tax bracket is not going to make you poorer.
