Top Federal Individual Income Tax Rates

June 16, 2010

Abstract

The reduction in individual income tax rates and the other tax cut provisions enacted in 2001 and 2003 were "sunset" at the end of 2010. Unless Congress acts to delay the expiration of the rate reductions, the top individual rate will rise from 35% in 2010 to 39.6% for 2011 and later years.
