I'm new to java and we have to create a program telling the user how much of their income will be taxed based on rates given out by the government of Canada. I am getting 2 errors, one saying that "variable federal might not have been initialized" and the other "variable provincial might not have been initialized. " Can someone tell me what that means?

Here's the program just incase:

``````class IncomeTax
{
public static void main (String[] args)
{
// DECLARE VARIABLES/DATA DICTIONARY

double income;   // The income of which the tax is being calculated.
double totaltax; // The total income tax (in dollars) that was taken off the income.
double avgTax;   // The total percentage of income tax was taken off the income

double federal;       // tax by federal gov.
double provincial;   // tax by provincial gov

// READ IN GIVENS  - use the class ITI1120

// BODY OF ALGORITHM

if (income <= 37885.0)
{
federal = income * 0.15;
}
else
{
;
}
if (income <=75769.0)
{
federal = (income - 37885.0) * 0.22 + 37885.0 * 0.15;
}
else
{
;
}
if (income <= 123184.0)
{
federal = (income - 75769.0) * 0.26 + (75769.0-37885.0) * 0.22 + 37885.0 * 0.15;
}
else
{
;
}
if (income > 123184.0)
{
federal = (income - 123184.0) * 0.29 + (123184.0 - 75769.0) * 0.26 + (75769.0-37885.0) * 0.22 + 37885.0 * 0.15;
}

if (income <= 36020.0)
{
provincial = income * 0.0605;
}
else
{
;
}
if (income <= 72041.0)
{
provincial = (income - 36020.0) * 0.0915 + 36020.0 * 0.0605;
}
else
{
;
}
if (income > 72041.0)
{
provincial = (income - 72041.0) * 0.1116 + (72041.0 - 36020.0) * 0.0915 + 36020.0 * 0.0605;
}

totaltax = (federal + provincial);
avgTax = (totaltax /income) * 100.0;

// PRINT OUT RESULTS AND MODIFIEDS

System.out.println("\$" + totaltax + " will be taken from your income due to taxes.");
System.out.println("The average rate of tax that you are paying to the Government is " + avgTax + "%.");
}

}``````
