BY SALLY P. SCHREIBER, J.D.

On Tuesday, the IRS announced corrections to two of the 2013 tax tables it issued on Jan. 11 in Rev. Proc. 2013-15. 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.”    

In Table 2, Head of Households, the seventh entry in the “The Tax Is:” column was corrected to read “$121,364.50 plus 39.6% of the excess over $425,000.” Originally, it read “$121,394.50 plus 39.6% of the excess over $425,000.”
