If a married couple has two fairly high-earners, are they going to get clobbered with the new 2013 tax rates? If I read the new rates correctly here:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tax_bracket#2013_tax_brackets_u...then I think my wife and I are going to be caught.Say that in 2013 one of us makes $250K and the other makes $350K. I used the above tax brackets and did some simple calculations ignoring deductions, etc, and determined that we would pay about $19,000 more in taxes being married that filing as two singles.Ouch. Tell me this is not the case. Married life is good and all, but $20,000! If we file separately can we avoid the penalty? Is divorce the answer?
