Federal Tax Brackets 2019

Annualy, the IRS adjusts tax brackets for inflation. This prevents ‘bracket creep’, a situation wherein inflation pushes income into higher tax brackets. The result is an increase in income taxes but no increase in real purchasing power.


The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 changed the inflation measurement from the Consumer Price Index (CPI) to the Chained Consumer Price Index (C-CPI).
