Marginal Tax Rate

Your marginal tax rate is the tax on your next (or last) dollar of taxable income.

  • rate increases as tax income increases (called a progressive tax system)
  • applies to investment income

For higher tax rates, investments with lower tax rates give higher after-tax returns.
