How to calculate income tax on citizens :-Copy
Many of us cannot calculate income tax, especially for those for whom mathematics was not their favorite at different educational levels, so it will be difficult for them to know the annual value due for taxes from their salaries, so we will learn together how to convert percentages in income tax brackets into actual value through some illustrative examples.
Let's first review how to calculate the percentage, in order to learn from it how to calculate the actual value of income tax brackets, and the percentage is calculated through a specific law based on the following:
Percentage = (Value / Total Value) X 100, for example, if you want to know the percentage of 15 outstanding students from a class of 50 students, you are on a date with a simple calculation based on the total of the operation of dividing 15 "value" by 50 "actual value" X 100, to be as follows: (15 / 50) X 100 = 30%.
Let's apply the previous example to some of the income tax brackets that we mentioned earlier, but this time we will calculate the value due for taxes instead of calculating the percentage, through the following equation:
Value = (actual value x percentage) / 100, for example, if we want to know the value payable for the second tranche whose net income ranges from 15k to 30k, the amount payable is (15,000 x 2.5) / 100 = 375 pounds, and if the maximum income reaches 30,000 pounds, the amount payable is (30,000 x 2.5) / 100 = 750 pounds.
Another illustrative example of one of the income tax brackets, if the net profit is 45 thousand pounds, i.e. within the fourth bracket, the amount payable for taxes is equivalent to (45,000 x 15) / 100 = 6,750 pounds.
