11The income tax rate is imposed on taxable income of the amounts shown in this row; the long-term capital gains tax rate is also based on taxable income; the threshold for the 0.9% Medicare surtax is wage income; and the threshold for the 3.8% tax on net investment income is based on modified AGI.
2Note that employers will begin to withhold when an employee’s income reaches $200,000 even if the employee and his or her spouse would not reach the $250,000 threshhold; the additional tax collected can be claimed as a credit on the couple’s joint return.
3The OASDI tax is not imposed on wages above $137,700, although the tax is imposed on the wage income of each member of a couple, if applicable, so a couple could pay up to $17,075 on income of $275,400 if each of them made at least $137,700.
