As far as I understand it:

If I make 5k yearly versus making 50k yearly I fall into a different federal tax bracket and the amount I'm taxed becomes modified (this is the simple explanation).


Does anything like this exist for the nyc tax bracket or is it a flat tax? What about for people who make less than 5k yearly?

New York City income tax is progressive, just like federal income tax. If you look at page 69 of form IT-201-I available here from the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance, you'll see a table of how to apply the tax brackets depending on marital status.
