Greetings, Kevin, and welcome. You asked:

How would I find out my marginal tax rate? Would that be the percentage found in the tax tables or does it depend on my income or what?

Yes, it is the percentage found in the tax tables for your taxable (not gross) income. All it means is that every additional dollar you make will be taxed at that rate until your total taxable income exceeds the ceiling in that bracket. If you do exceed that ceiling, then the marginal rate changes to the percentage found in the next higher bracket.
