Some important "trigger" income levels for 2024

CORRECTED TO POST #16

Similar to what I did for the last four years, here is a list of important “trigger” income levels for 2024.

Numbers are actual AGI/MAGI (i.e. - before standard or itemized deductions) unless indicated as Taxable Income by an asterisk * which means you can add $29,200 MFJ/$14,600 single if you use the standard deduction (+ another $1550 per person over 65 or blind if MFJ/ $1950 if over 65 or blind single). Note also that MAGI and AGI are often not the same in different sections of the tax code. If you are close to one of the limits, ensure you know what is and is not included in income for that particular limit. Here is a discussion where the AGI/MAGI distinction was crucial and cost someone $15k.https://www.early-retirement.org/for...ml#post2844864

I have put social security taxation levels in a separate post (here https://www.early-retirement.org/for...ml#post2506932), because it is a little complicated (not too bad) and highly dependent on exactly how much social security you receive in comparison to your total income. (This links to the 2021 thread, Post #2).

This is based on current law; there may be changes. As with the last four years, this is a collaborative effort, so if you have corrections or additions, please post them here and I will adjust this first post as necessary. I have included updated references at the bottom of the post. If you have a change or addition, it would be helpful to link a reference for it.

Link to 2023 thread is here - https://www.early-retirement.org/for...-a-115879.html

Thanks again!

Missing Additional Medicare Tax (the other AMT) of 0.9% that kicks in at $250K/$125K wages/SE income. https://www.irs.gov/taxtopics/tc560

It is a strange one though because it doesn't use AGI, MAGI or taxable income, but rather total wages/SE income (and Railroad Retirement Income for some reason). But considering that Medicare tax is only 1.45% on wages and 2.9% on SE income, it is actually rather large at another 0.9%.

Thanks. I see that it is $200k for single taxpayers, so that's what I have put in the list.
