Investopedia explains 'Tax Table'


Tax tables are used most often by individuals and companies with modest levels of income. High income earners, whether individuals or corporations, tend to use more detailed tax rate schedules in conjunction with itemized deductions.

Tax tables will change from year to year, and will vary from state to state. Investors should always be sure that they are using the correct tax tables based on their income sources and area of residence.
