A few basic questions on taxes:

How do I find out what tax bracket I am in? (this year I made 85k with a 10k bonus = 95k total)

My wife works currently, but we have a baby due in March and she will stop working once the baby is born, and probably won't go back for the entire year. What implications will this have on me when filling out my taxes? Do I now have 2 dependents, or just 1? How much will this save us on taxes?

We will also be buying a home soon. Is there anything I need to change on my W-2 form that can save me monthly taxes due to writing off the interest on our loan and property tax? Or do I just write off the interest and propert tax at the end of the year when I file my return?
