Here's a look at what the new income tax brackets mean for every type of US taxpayer this year

Donald Trump

  • President Donald Trump signed the Republican tax bill into law late last year.
  • New income tax brackets for 2018 will affect nearly all taxpayers.
  • How much you’ll pay in taxes depends on several factors, including whether you’re single or married.
  • Business Insider previously listed how single people in different occupations would fare under the tax law.

The Republican tax plan is now the law of the land.

That means it’s time for American taxpayers to brace for some major changes. The new law retains seven income tax brackets but alters the ranges. Personal exemptions have been eliminated, but the standard deduction has increased.

These changes to Americans‘ tax brackets will kick in when you file your 2018 taxes before Tax Day on April 15 in 2019. 

How the new tax bracket shift affects you comes down to several factors, like how much you earn and whether you’re married.

Here’s how the new 2018 income tax brackets will affect both single and married Americans
