Tax Reform and what it means to your contribution

The Tax Reform takes places this year’s filing, and here is what it means for your filing regarding contributing to The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Kalamazoo.

What’s New?

Tax Brackets have shifted:

Whether you are filing as a single or married couple (jointly) you are probably in a new tax bracket.

The new law offers rates lower for most tax brackets. A single filer whose income is $80,000 tax rate is 22% as opposed to 25%. Below are last year’s and this year’s tax brackets:
