    2019 will see marginally different tax bracket numbers and standard deduction increases for all taxpayers so I thought I'd share them here. Remember this will be for when you file you 2019 taxes in 2020. Per Forbes (2018 v 2019):

    This is the 2018 standard deduction table:

    And this is the 2019 standard deduction table:

    Std 2019

    So a few hundred dollar increase for everyone. Not a lot, but at least its something. And for the tax bracket changes..

    This is the 2018 Individual Tax Bracket:

    And here's the slightly updated 2019 Individual Tax Bracket:

    Single 2019

    The same small increases will also be added to all filing status brackets, like Married Filing Jointly:



    MFJ 2019

    Forbes really did a good job breaking everything done, so here are the 2 articles I used to get that info:

    IRS Announces 2018 Tax Rates, Standard Deductions, Exemption Amounts And More

    IRS Announces 2019 Tax Rates, Standard Deduction Amounts And More

    At least the standard deduction will almost cover my cost for filing taxes. Very Happy Thanks for the share; all good to know!

    It was certainly easier to file my taxes this year since the standard deduction made it so I didn't have to worry about itemizing everything. However, it didn't seem to make much of a difference at all in the end. Wound up paying roughly the same as previous years when all was said and done.
