What will the 2011 tax rates be? Lots of things could happen with the 2011 tax brackets, but whatever the changes are, they will impact your tax planning this year.
2011 Tax Rate Changes
There are many things that could happen with the 2011 tax rates. Congress could let all of the 2001 Bush tax cuts expire, which would essentially raise taxes for all the tax brackets.
Or they could keep the tax cuts in place for those earning less than $250,000, but bring back the two higher tax rates in 2011 for those making over $250,000 as they have alluded to in the 2010 budget proposal. The proposal also includes expanding the tax bracket for those in the 28% bracket.
