All tax variables are calculated by the Census Bureau and copy directly into the IPUMS-CPS ASEC supplement files. After a change in 2004, the Census Bureau released a report detailing their new model for producing tax estimates, this report should provide all the information you need as to how the figures are calculated.

I hope this helps.
