America's tax brackets are changing thanks to inflation. Here's how that affects you.

The announcement of the tax-bracket shifts came shortly after the Social Security Administration revealed the largest inflation adjustment for fixed-income beneficiaries in a generation.

Tax brackets move alongside the inflation rate, meaning the amount of tax you pay on your income gradually shifts in normal times.

But the persistently high inflation consumers have faced in 2022 is anything but normal, so the tax brackets moved up to offset that.

The good news is, if your wages didn't rise enough, you'll likely fall into a lower tax bracket in 2023.

The standard deduction for married couples filing jointly for the 2023 tax year rises to $27,700, up $1,800 from the prior year.

For single taxpayers and married individuals filing separately, the standard deduction rises to $13,850, up $900;

And for heads of households, the standard deduction will be $20,800, up $1,400.

Meanwhile, the 12% tax bracket in 2023 will go to married couples filing jointly with incomes over $22,000 and individuals who earned more than $11,000.

The 22% threshold will apply to married couples filing jointly with incomes over $89,450 and individuals with incomes over $44,725.
