How to Calculate Taxable Income and Tax Liability

Taxable income is the amount of money you owe in taxes after taking into account all sources of income, deductions, and credits. Estimating your tax bill begins with estimating your taxable income. To do this, you need to start by calculating your gross income and subtracting any tax deductions. Then, you can apply the corresponding tax category (based on income and marital status) to calculate your tax liability.

In India, any income that exceeds the ceiling is subject to income tax at the rate set by the Indian income tax department. For businesses, taxable income is calculated by deducting all expenses and deductions from total revenues and other income earned. States that have a state income tax require that you file a separate state tax return, since they have their own rules. In the United States, income is taxed by the federal government, most state governments, and many local governments.

When paying your taxes, you should consider using a tax filing service that allows you to pay with a credit card. Additionally, the taxable income of a corporation is calculated by deducting the cost of goods sold from total revenues and other income earned. These are called “marginal tax rates” because they only apply to income within a specific range. Your tax liability also depends on whether or not you received any refundable tax credits.

When you file your taxes, if the amount of taxes you owe (your tax liability) is less than the amount withheld from your paycheck during the year, you will receive a refund for the difference. If you didn't pay taxes during the year or owe taxes but are entitled to one or more refundable tax credits, you'll also receive a refund equal to the refundable amount of the credits.
