How was your total tax line 44 calculated

The tax on line 44 is based on the type of taxable income you have on line 43. If it is all ordinary income, the tax is taken from the IRS tax tables. If some of it is from capital gains or qualified dividends, those are taxed at different tax rates based on your tax bracket. The results of the two types of tax calculations are added together on line 44.
