Federal Income Tax Calculator

Federal Income Taxes are withheld from your paycheck by your employer. To find how much, choose which filing status best describes your situation and enter your gross annual income (your income before taxes).

Federal income taxes are a percentage of all taxable income (wages, interest earned, capital gains, etc.) that must be paid to the federal government by businesses and individuals. If you work for an employer, a percentage of each paycheck is withheld to account for this throughout the year. At tax time, you’ll determine whether you owe more or have over-paid and get a refund. This calculator will help you determine how much is being withheld as a percentage and monthly dollar amount.
