There are a couple of additional taxes that you need to know about so you can plan for how to pay for them.

The median income for a household in the Washington region was $84,500 in 2010, according to the Census Bureau. So, we'll look at the tax bill for folks who fall in that tax bracket.

The average federal tax burden is $14,891 for this group

The changes just signed into law hold your income taxes steady. However, you will pay an additional $1,149 because of the payroll tax holiday ending, plus new health care taxes kicking in.

The tax hike will lower your take home by about 1.7 percent.These numbers were calculated by the Tax Policy Center, Congressional Budget office and Joint Committee on Taxation.
