[h3]2009 Tax Rates[/h3]Below are the marginal tax brackets for 2009. Tax rates progressively increase as income increases. The tax rates apply only to theincome in each tax bracket range. Also, the tax rates apply only to taxable income. Various adjustments and deductions, including the standard deduction andpersonal exemptions, all lower a person's taxable income. Taxable income is almost always less than your total income.
Capital gains may be taxed at different tax rates. Capital gains tax rates arecalculated separately.

Note: These tax rate schedules are provided for tax planning purposes. To compute your actual income tax, please see the 2009 instructionsfrom the IRS for Form 1040, 1040A, or 1040EZ as appropriate.
