For example: if your taxable profit is $60,000, the tax owed will be $7,500 + [25 % *(60,000 – 50,000)]

Note: You must also take into account state tax rates. U.S. states have full power to assess taxes on their citizens and on activities that occur within their borders (corporate, sales tax, etc.).
