Income tax by state Most state governments in the United States collect a state income tax on all income earned within the state, which is different from and must be filed separately from the federal income tax. While most states use a marginal bracketed income tax system similar to the federal income tax, every state has a completely unique income tax code.

Choose any state from the list above for detailed state income tax information including 2014 income tax tables, state tax deductions, and state-specific income tax calculators. Many state pages also provide direct links to selected income tax return forms and other resources.

If you want to compare all of the state tax rates on one page, visit the list of state income taxes. For info on 2011 federal income tax and federal tax refunds, visit the federal income tax and federal tax refund pages.


  1. Note: The average income tax is calculated by taking the statistical average of all the state's marginal income tax brackets. Before official 2014 tax brackets are released, estimated tax brackets are based on the previous year's brackets.
