Default Making More Money To Have Less Money?

Hi everyone!

I am really confused by how taxes work. This year we made more money about $20,000 extra than 2015 but we had more expenses about $14,000 BUT I had to pay three times more taxes than last year meaning I have $2000 left but worked so much more.

Anyone experienced something similar?

"Taxpayers fall into one of 7 brackets, depending on their taxable income: 10%, 15%, 25%, 28%, 33%, 35% or 39.6%."

It's hard to respond effectively without knowing more about your situation. As your income goes up, your taxes go up. It could be that you were kicked into a higher tax bracket and that means some of your income was taxed at a higher rate. It could be that you were no longer eligible for some tax credits. With $20,000 more in income and $14,000 more in expenses, that's a $6,000 increase in your profit. If your taxes were 40% (federal and state), that means you paid $2,400 more in taxes. That doesn't account for the $2,000 you say you have left over after taxes, but it starts to come close.
