The highest tax rate of 39.6 percent is paid on taxable income earned over $406,750 by single filers, over $457,600 by married filers filing jointly or surviving spouses, over $228,800 by married filers filing separately, and over $432,200 by heads of households.
The United States uses a progressive income tax system in which different amounts of taxable income are taxed at different rates for all filers, but this does not mean that if individuals are in the highest tax bracket they pay 39.6 percent on all income, says TaxACT. The income earned under the highest tax bracket amount is taxed at different rates per each of the seven wage brackets.Learn more about Taxes
