Questions 24-27:Given the following hypothetical U.S. Federal income tax brackets and marginal tax rates for single persons for 2011:

 Taxable Income Marginal Tax Rates 0 – \$20,000 5% \$20,000 – 60,000 10% \$60,000 – 200,000 20% Over \$200,000 30%

1. \$5,000
2. \$50,000
3. \$500,000
4. Which tax structure is this, based on your values of ATR?
