Updated Tax Brackets

Along with updated tax brackets for those who file as both single and married, the standard deduction is now higher. For singles, this was raised to $12,400, and for married people filing jointly in 2020, this was raised to $24,800. Personal exemptions were also eliminated. 

Other important updates include a change in contribution limits for 401(k) and 403(b), moving from $19,000 in 2019 up to $19,500. Plus, people who are over 50 can now contribute up to $6,500.
