What is my Louisiana tax bracket?
Technically, you don't have just one "tax bracket" - you pay all of the Louisiana marginal tax rates from the lowest tax bracket to the tax bracket in which you earned your last dollar. For comparison purposes, however, your Louisiana tax bracket is the tax bracket in which your last earned dollar in any given tax period falls.
You can think of the bracketed income tax as a flat amount for all of the money you earned up to your highest tax bracket. plus a marginal percentage of any amount you earned over that.
