Federal Basic Personal Amount
2020 Personal Amount (1) 2020 Tax Rate 2019 Personal Amount 2019 Tax Rate
$13,229 15% $12,069 15%
(1) The 2020 personal amount is increased from $12,298 to $13,229 for taxpayers with net income of $150,473 or less.  For incomes above this threshold, the additional amount of $931 is reduced until it becomes zero at net income of $214,368.  The marginal tax rates above have been adjusted to reflect this change.  The table of marginal tax rates assumes that net income equals taxable income.

The Federal marginal rate for $150,473 to $214,368 is 29.22% because of the above-noted personal amount reduction through this tax bracket. The additional 0.22% is calculated as 15% x ($13,229 - $12,298) / ($214,368 - $150,473).
