New For 2017: TAX RATES AND CHARITABLE DONATIONS
April 27th, 2018

In 2016, a new federal personal income tax bracket was introduced. Taxable income in excess of $200,000 is subject to a federal income tax rate of 33%.

In connection with this new federal income tax bracket, there is a related change in the calculation of the federal tax credit for charitable donations. Where a taxpayer is subject to the 33% tax rate a corresponding credit of 33% for eligible donations over $200 will be granted.

The new federal income tax bracket and related change to the donation credit continue to be in effect for 2017.
