Hello, I have read the requirements of this challenge and I have a good understanding of what needs to be done. I am confident that my program works but it DOESN'T. What a blow to my confidence. I am in hopes that someone kind person would point me in the right direction. I also have a web link where you can see my faults. http://www.dianamagers.com/folio/_income_tax/index.html

Thank you very much in advance. I am gratefully appreciative.

You have create the calcTaxes but you are not calling it.
i think you should do it like this:

var calculate_tax = function() {
    var total;
    var income = parseFloat( $("income").value );
    $("tax").value =  calcTaxes(income);
    console.log(tax);
    function calcTaxes(amount){
    var calculate = 0;
    if(amount > 85650){
        tax = (amount - 85650) * .28 + 870.0+(35350-8700)*.15+(89350-36900)*.25;
    }
    else if( amount > 35350){
    tax = (amount - 35350) * .25 + 870.0+(35350-8700)*.15;    
    }
    else if(amount > 8700){
    tax = (amount - 8700) * .15 + 870.0;
    }
    else{
       tax = amount * .10;
        }
    tax += amount * .153;
    return tax;
    /*
    10% on taxable income from $0 to $8,700, plus
    15% on taxable income over $8,700 to $35,350, plus
    25% on taxable income over $35,350 to $85,650, plus
    */
}
}

Well, I do believe you are right. I thought I had my logic down good. You just gave my a nudge in the right direction. Thank you again.
