Income tax 101 , not including capital gains or state tax?

single person that owns a house making 45,000 a yr would pay(10%x10750)+(15%x30300)+(25%x3950)= 1075+4545+987=6607 ok so thats basic 6607+2790(social security)+652(medicare)+3442(fica)=13491 in federal income taxe (no deductions no dependants nothing just a single person owns a house) now if a single... show more single person that owns a house making 45,000 a yr would pay(10%x10750)+(15%x30300)+(25%x3950)=

1075+4545+987=6607

ok so thats basic 6607+2790(social security)+652(medicare)+3442(fica)=13491 in federal income taxe (no deductions no dependants nothing just a single person owns a house)


now if a single person home owner same as above makes 250,000 a yr

and following the same as above would be 82,045 fed income tax

so If the 250,000 dollar a yr is paying 82,045 dollars a yr and and the 45,000 is paying 13,491 a yr ,

please explain where the the person earning more gets a tax break ?

now remember this is just a home owner with no other deductables and single
