Pennsylvania State Income Tax Deductions

Income tax deductions are expenses that can be deducted from your gross pre-tax income before determining your taxable income.

Pennsylvania Standard Deduction

Unlike many other states, Pennsylvania has no standard deduction. Certain itemized deductions (including property tax, qualified charitable contributions, etc) may be allowed depending on the income level and filing type of the taxpayer. Keep in mind that not all deductions allowed on your federal income tax return are necessarily going to be allowed on your Pennsylvania income tax return.

Pennsylvania Personal Exemptions

Pennsylvania has no personal exemption. The Federal Income Tax, however, does allow a personal exemption to be deducted from your gross income if you are responsible for supporting yourself financially.

Pennsylvania Dependent Deduction

Unlike most states, Pennsylvania does not have a dependent deduction. You can, however, claim dependent deductions on your Federal Tax Return.

Pennsylvania Itemized Deductions

Unlike the Federal income tax, the Pennsylvania income tax does not allow itemized deductions. You may claim the Pennsylvania standard deduction if applicable, and specific deductions may be available to Pennsylvania taxpayers as limited deductions or tax credits.
