Wolters Kluwer recently released projected inflation-adjusted 2019 amounts for a few important items. These projections are based on the Consumer Price Index figures released on September 12, 2018.
With the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, we saw 7 total tax brackets put into place, ranging from 10% to 37%. According to Wolters Kluwer, the projected brackets are as follows:
According to Wolters Kluwer's projections, the standard deduction would see only a slight increase. For unmarried taxpayers, an increase of $200 would bring it to $12,200 and married taxpayers would see a bump of $400 to $24,400.
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act eliminated the Alternative Minimum Tax exemptions for corporations, but individuals will continue to fall into its qualifications. For married taxpayers, the exemption would see a slight increase from $109,400 to $111,700. For unmarried taxpayers, the exemption would get a slight boost from $70,300 to $71,700.
Roth IRA income phase-out range is projected to be between $193,000 and $203,000 for married taxpayers and between $122,000 and $137,000 for unmarried taxpayers. For traditional IRA's, the contribution limit for 2019 is projected to sit at $6,000 ($7,000 for those over 50 years of age), up from $5,500 ($6,500) in 2018.
The $2,500 student loan interest deduction is projecting to phase out for married joint filers with modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) greater than $140,000 and $70,000 for unmarried taxpayers.
