The corrections, as incorporated into the revised revenue procedure, are to Tables 1 and 2 of the tax rate tables in Rev. Proc. 2013-15, Section 2.01. In Table 1, Married Individuals Filing Joint Returns and Surviving Spouses, the sixth entry in the “The Tax Is:” column was corrected to read “$107,768.50 plus 35% of the excess over $398,350.” Originally, it read “$107,768.00 plus 35% of the excess over $398,350.”
