Marginal Tax Calculator
The Marginal Tax Calculator assists lawyers to calculate the approximate tax consequences of various transactions, such as net retirement income, liquidating assets, and the additional taxes payable upon spousal support payments.
The "marginal" tax rate is the percentage of tax applied to income for each tax bracket. As a rough example, if an Albertan earned only employment income of $80,000 in 2017, their first $45,916 of earnings would be taxed at 25% at the first bracket ($11,479), and as their remaining income ($34,084) would not exceed the second bracket (up to $91,831), it would be taxed at 30.5% in the second bracket ($10,395.62). They would then receive the federal and personal basic personal amounts, which would reduce their taxation by $3614.25, resulting in total taxes of $18,260 (22.8% tax). Their taxation may be further adjusted by other credits and deductions, such as for their age or parental status.
