how much tax to pay?
How much would a person earning 30,001 pay in taxes if we use this table

--------------------------
First #8358;30,000 5%
Next #8358;30,000 10%
Next #8358;50,000 15%
Next #8358;50,000 20%
Over #8358;160,000 25%

No tax is payable on annual income of N30,000 or less

For me this table seems confusing.
But this is what is written in official documents of the country.

What do they mean by " First"?

Would you tell to which country this table relates?

As far as I understand it means

If you see the last entry it says, over 160,000. And if you calculate the total of earlier slabs (30k + 30k+ 50k+ 50k), it also amounts to 160,000

So it says that first 30,000 units of a person's earning shall be taxed at the rate of 5%

if the income exceeds 30,000 the exceeding portion will be taxed at 10%

if the income exceeds 60,000, the exceeding portion shall be taxed at 15%............. and so on

further illustration is

if a person has a taxable income of 200,000, we will break it as follows

30,000 + 30,000 + 50,000 + 50,000 + 40,000

For first 30,000 @ 5% = 1500

For next 30,000 @ 10% = 3000

for next 50,000 @ 15% = 7500

for next 50,000 @ 20% = 10,000

for next 40,000 @ 25% = 10,000

Total tax payable is
1500 + 3000 + 7500 + 10000 + 10,000 =
