What Is the Federal Tax Table for 1040EZ?

The federal tax table for Form 1040EZ is found on the last few pages of the Instructions for Form 1040EZ. It provides the federal income tax due for taxpayers who choose to file Form 1040EZ, according to the Internal Revenue Service.

Taxpayers who are single or married filing jointly with a taxable income of less than $100,000 annually and no dependents may choose to file Form 1040EZ as opposed to Form 1040 or 1040A, explains the IRS. Form 1040EZ is the simplest of the three forms. On Form 1040EZ, taxpayers cannot itemize deductions or claim any adjustments to income or tax credits. Form 1040EZ has its own tax table; taxpayers cannot use the tax table for Form 1040 to determine their tax if they file Form 1040EZ.

To use the tax table for Form 1040EZ, taxpayers first find their taxable income in the appropriate column. Once they locate their income, they can read across the line to the correct filing status, either single or married filing jointly. Their tax is listed under the appropriate heading. For instance, using the tax table for 2014, an individual filing as a single taxpayer with a taxable income of $70,000 owes $13,363, while a married taxpayer filing jointly with this same taxable income owes $9,596, notes the IRS.
