Adjusted Gross Income: 

Earned Income: 

            Income from Acting:                                                  $2900 

Unearned Income: 

            Interest Income:                                                          $12200

            Taxable Qualified Dividend Income:                         $14000 

                                                                                                $26200

 

Total Adjusted Gross Income                                                                      $29100 

Less:    The Larger of:

Standard Deduction                                 $950 

Or 

$300 plus earned income          

 

Earned income:     Income from acting    

                              ($300 + $2900)           $3200                          $3200

 

 

Total Taxable Income                                                                                                           $25900

Joe’s Tax Liability                                        

 

Joe’s Net Unearned Income

 

Interest Income                                               $12200

Taxable Qualified Dividend Income:             $14000

 

Net Unearned Income:                                   $26200

 

Unearned Income > $1900                             $24300

 

 

Out of $ 24300 unearned Income Taxable Qualified Income is taxable @15%

 

So, Tax on Taxable Qualified Dividend Income

 

$14000*15%                           =          $2100 

 

Tax on other Unearned Income taxable on parent’s taxed rates:

 

Parent’s tax rate is 25%

 

($10300*25%)                                    =          $2576

                                   

 

Tax on taxable Income minus Net Unearned Income

 

Tax at child rate @ 10%

 

($25900-$24300)*10%           =          $160

 

Total Tax Liability                =          $4836
