For example, regarding your income taxes and income tax rates, VeriPlan uses current marginal federal income tax rates after taking into account your projected tax deductions, exemptions, and adjustments. Regarding state taxes and local income tax rates, VeriPlan assesses these taxes according to the marginal or flat tax rate method that applies in your tax jurisdiction. VeriPlan automatically assesses Social Security taxes, Medicare taxes, self-employment taxes, real estate and property taxes, short-term capital gains taxes, and long-term capital gains taxes. In addition, it automatically applies taxes across your lifetime to your traditional IRA and 401k accounts and to your Roth IRA and Roth 401k account contributions.
