Solution

Assume that our annual income is given in cell A2, we shall apply the following formula to include all 12 tax brackets. (There should be no [break or Enter key pressed] in between the the formula components).

=IF(A2<=400000,0,

IF(A2<=500000,(A2-400000)*0.02,

IF(A2<=750000,(A2-500000)*0.05+2000,

IF(A2<=1400000,(A2-750000)*0.1+14500,

IF(A2<=1500000,(A2-1400000)*0.125+79500,

IF(A2<=1800000,(A2-1500000)*0.15+92000,

IF(A2<=2500000,(A2-1800000)*0.175+137000,

IF(A2<=3000000,(A2-2500000)*0.20+259500,

IF(A2<=3500000,(A2-3000000)*0.225+359500,

IF(A2<=4000000,(A2-3500000)*0.25+472000,

IF(A2<=7000000,(A2-4000000)*0.275+597000,

(A27000000)*0.3+1422000)))))))))))
