Higher Rate of Income Tax

Higher Rate of Income Tax

In progressive taxation, a tax rate above another rate. In most cases, the higher rate of income tax only applies to income over a defined level. For example, if one is taxed 10% on all income under $15,000 and 20% on all income over $15,000, 20% is the higher rate of income tax.
