    The amount over $171,850 is simply the taxable income - $171,850. Multiply that by 33% and add to the $41,827.25

    Okay, the tax is $41,827.25 + 33% of the amount over $171,850. You could write this as \[Tax = $41,827.25 + 0.33(Income-$171,850)\] because 33% is simply 33/100 or 0.33. Income was $254,129. Punch $254,129 into your calculator and subtract $171,850 to get the amount over $171,850. Multiply that number by 0.33. Add $41,827.25. The result is your final answer.
