    Omg.......I’m gonna have to break this down further.

    My taxable income is 77,000. That’s right below the next step to 22% bracket as a joint filler.

    I’m the only one bringing money into our household. My wife’s taxable contribution is zero.

    But if I were to file single I would be deep in the 22% bracket. That is a HUGE difference in taxes.

    There is a definite tax advantage to be married, with kids and file joint. ESPECIALLY if there is a single income earner.

    There can be if you're lower income.

    My point was a lot of those breaks go away when the income level rises....

    You never defined your point, just tried to say I was wrong.

    Welcome to the American progressive tax system. Which goes back to my original point in that everyone should be taxed the same, no incentives or breaks. Lower the effective rate for all and reduce government spending. It’s much more fair.

    The way the system is now it can discourage increasing your income. As is the situation I’m in. My wife could go back to work but much of her income would go toward child care. Our standard of living wouldn’t increase much more but our tax burden nearly doubles. I harvested losses, increased my traditional 401K contribution percentage to 10%, and made contributions to a traditional IRA instead of my Roth in order to get to 77,000 and stay at 12% tax rate. At this point it makes much more sense for quality of life reasons for her to stay at home and raise the kids. I just need to make more.
