7 State Income Tax Myths
Common misconceptions about state income taxes
From Tonya Moreno, CPA, former Contributing Writer

State income taxes are complicated, especially when each state has their own way of doing things. And this complicated web of differing tax rules can lead to a lot of misconceptions. Don't fall for these seven common myths about state income taxes this year.

Myth 1: I only have to pay income taxes to the state I live in

False. State income taxes apply not only to residents, but also to nonresidents and part-year residents. Most states require that you pay taxes on income you made while living in the state, as well as income earned from sources within that state. That means if you simply made income in a state, but never lived there, you would still owe income taxes to that state as a nonresident.

Myth 2: State income tax rules are the same as federal tax rules

False. Most state tax laws are similar to federal tax law, but each state usually differs from the federal rules in some way. Some states choose to omit only certain parts of the Internal Revenue Code (federal tax law), while other states omit nearly all of it. Some states have even created a radically different income tax system that uses a flat rate for all taxpayers, instead of the bracketed tax rates that the IRS uses.

Also see: Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Conformity

Myth 3: State income taxes are unconstitutional

This is true in a sense. The federal constitution contains clauses that prevent discriminatory taxes and state taxes that impede interstate commerce, but it does not ban state income taxes or any other state tax. Occasionally, state taxes will be challenged as discriminatory or as impeding interstate commerce, but this is generally not a defense against state income taxes.

However, there can be sections in a state's constitution that limit certain types of taxes. For example, in Virginia a property tax was levied on businesses to pay for an expansion of the subway. One business challenged this tax citing a section in Virginia's constitution that requires that all property in a taxable area be treated equally and uniformly. The business contended that this tax was unconstitutional because residential property owners did not have to pay the tax even though they would benefit from the subway expansion. Although the case has not been decided yet, this is a good example of a situation where taxes could be unconstitutional, based upon the state's constitution, not the federal constitution.

Myth 4: I have to pay income taxes to the state where my employer is located

False. The location of your employer's corporate headquarters has no bearing on your state income taxes, unless you have actually worked in that state. However, if your employer withheld taxes for their state by accident, you would need to file a nonresident tax return in their state to receive a refund of those withholdings.

Myth 5: I don't have to file a return in a reciprocal state

False. If you live in one state and work in another, reciprocal agreements exempt you from paying income taxes to the state you work in. However, if you have not filed an exemption form with your employer or taxes have been withheld for your work state by mistake, you'll still need to file a nonresident return to get those withholdings refunded.

Myth 6: I got audited, and everything was fine. Therefore, I did everything right on my return.

False. If you get audited by the state, their primary objective is to find mistakes that have led to underpayments. If you have left off a deduction, if you qualified for a credit but didn't use it, or any other situation where you may have missed tax saving opportunities, it's your responsibility to find those errors and file an amended return. An auditor will not be looking for those types of mistakes and will usually not volunteer that information. If you have miscalculated a deduction to your detriment, and an auditor finds that mistake, that is something they would likely tell you about, but they will not scout out tax savings for you. So, just because you got a good report from your auditor doesn't mean that you haven't overpaid your taxes. It simply means you haven't underpaid.

Myth 7: I don't owe taxes because I live or work in a state without an income tax

You cannot avoid state income taxes simply by working in a tax-free state. You have to also be a resident of that state. If you are a resident of the other 41 states that have an income tax, you'll have to pay tax to your home state on all of your income regardless of where you earned it, including income you made in a state without an income tax.

Similarly, if you are a resident of a tax-free state, and have worked in a taxing state, you still have to pay taxes to the state where you worked. Unless you are working in a reciprocal state, you will have to pay taxes to the state where you earned your income. You would file a nonresident return to pay these taxes.

Taxes by State
http://retirementliving.com/RLtaxes.html

If you plan to move to another state when you retire, examine the tax burden you*ll face when you arrive. State taxes are increasingly important to everyone, but retirees have extra cause for concern since their income may be fixed.

Many people planning to retire use the presence or absence of a state income tax as a litmus test for a retirement destination. This is a serious miscalculation since higher sales and property taxes can more than offset the lack of a state income tax. The lack of a state income tax doesn*t necessarily ensure a low total tax burden.

States raise revenue in many ways including sales taxes, excise taxes, license taxes, income taxes, intangible taxes, property taxes, estate taxes and inheritance taxes. Depending on where you live, you may end up paying all of them or just a few.

This section of our Web site provides you with information on state income taxes, sales and fuel taxes, taxes on retirement income, property taxes and inheritance and estate taxes. as well as sales and fuel taxes. It is intended to give you some insight into which states may offer a lower cost of living. To check out the state where you want to retire, just select from the state menu above.

∴State Sales Tax
All states except Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire and Oregon, collect sales taxes. Delaware collects a Gross Receipts Tax (GRT) which is a business and gross receipts tax that can total 2.07%. Some have a single rate throughout the state though most permit local city and county additions to the base tax rate. Those states with a single rate include Connecticut, District of Columbia, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Rhode Island, and West Virginia.

States with the highest sales tax are: California (8.25%), Indiana (7%), Mississippi (7%), New Jersey (7%), Rhode Island (7%), Tennessee (7%), Minnesota (6.875%), Nevada (6.85%), Arizona (6.6%), Washington (6.5%), Kansas (6.3%), Texas and Illinois (6.25%).

Most states exempt prescription drugs from sales taxes. Some also exempt food and clothing purchases and a few also exempt non-prescription drugs.

∴Fuel Tax
Every state collects excise taxes on gasoline, diesel fuel and gasohol. The figures shown for each state reflect only the amounts controlled by the states and do not include additional taxes imposed on motor carriers. However, they do include other taxes paid at the pump by consumers. Where applicable they include sales taxes, gross receipts taxes, oil inspection fees, underground storage tank fees and other miscellaneous environmental fees. They do not include the federal excise tax which is 18.4 cents for gasoline and 24.4 cents for diesel fuel.

Nine states permit cities or counties to impose a local tax on fuel. Taxes in some states can also vary based on the wholesale price which is adjusted quarterly.

∴Cigarette Tax
Several states are continuing to raise excise taxes on cigarettes and other tobacco products in order to increase revenue. The rates shown do not include the federal cigarette tax of $1.01 a pack. New York City is the most expensive place to buy cigarettes ($5.85), when you include the state and local tax. The top 12 states with the highest state tax on cigarettes are: New York ($4.35), Rhode Island ($3.46), Washington ($3.025), Connecticut ($3.00), New Jersey ($2.70), Wisconsin ($2.52), Massachusetts ($2.51), Distr5ict of Columbia ($2.50), and Vermont ($2.24). Tied for eleventh place are: Alaska ($2.00), Arizona ($2.00), Connecticut ($2.00), District of Columbia ($2.50) Maine ($2.00), Maryland ($2.00), and Michigan ($2.00).Tied for tenth place are: Alaska ($2.00), Arizona ($2.00), District of Columbia ($2.00), Maine ($2.00), Maryland ($2.00), and Michigan ($2.00). Counties and cities may impose an additional tax ranging from 1 cent to $2.00 on a pack of cigarettes. About 82% of what consumers pay for a pack of cigarettes (average cost $5.51 - including statewide sales taxes but not local cigarette or sales taxes) ends up going to the government in taxes and other payments rather than for the cigarettes.

∴Personal Income Tax
A total of 41 states impose income taxes. New Hampshire and Tennessee apply it only to income from interest and dividends. Seven states (Alaska, Florida, Nevada, South Dakota, Texas, Washington, and Wyoming) do not tax personal income. Of the 41 with a broad-based income tax, 35 base the taxes on federal returns, typically taking a portion of what you pay the IRS or using your federal adjusted gross income or taxable income as the starting point.

∴Personal Exemptions and Standard Deductions
Most states specify amounts for taxpayers and each of their dependents that can be used as an offset in determining taxable income. Most also specify the amounts that persons 65 or older can deduct.

∴Medical/Dental Deductions
Most states treat health care expenses as having already been deducted from federal returns. Two states (North Dakota and Oregon) allow full deductions while Indiana doesn't permit itemized deductions on state taxes.

∴Federal Income Tax Deduction
Only nine of the 41 states with broad-based income taxes permit taxpayers to deduct some or all of their federal income taxes. This is an advantage if you are deciding between two states with similar rate structures but only one allows you to deduct. The latter would give you a lower effective tax rate. The states are Alabama, Iowa, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon and Utah.

∴Retirement Income Taxes
Under federal law, taxpayers may be required to include a portion of their Social Security benefits in their taxable adjusted gross income (AGI). Most states begin the calculation of state personal income tax liability with federal AGI, or federal taxable income. In those states, the portion of Social Security benefits subject to personal income tax is subject to state personal income tax unless state law allows taxpayers to subtract the federally taxed portion of their benefits from their federal AGI in the computation of their state AGI.

Many states exclude Social Security retirement benefits from state income taxes. The District of Columbia and 27 states with income taxes provide a full exclusion for Social Security benefits -- Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Delaware, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and Wisconsin.

The remaining 14 states with broad-based income taxes tax Social Security to some extent:
♂Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Rhode Island, Vermont and West Virginia tax Social Security income to the extent it is taxed by the federal government.
♂Connecticut, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Montana tax Social Security income above an income floor. Iowa will gradually phase out its Social Security tax levy from 2008 through 2014. Missouri will phase out its Social Security tax levy by 2010. Kansas residents can exclude Social Security income if their adjusted gross income is less than $75,000.
♂Colorado, New Mexico and Utah require that federally untaxed Social Security benefits be added back to federal AGI to calculate the base against which their broad age-determined income exclusions apply.

States are prohibited from taxing benefits of U.S. military retirees if they exempt the pensions of state and local government retirees. Most states that impose an income tax exempt at least part of pension income from taxable income. Different types of pension income (private, military, federal civil service, and state or local government) are often treated differently for tax purposes.

States are generally free from federal control in deciding how to tax pensions, but some limits apply. State tax policy cannot discriminate against federal civil service pensions. Ten states exclude all federal, state and local pension income from taxation. These include Alabama, Hawaii, Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, New York and Pennsylvania. Among these 10 states, only Kansas taxes any Social Security income, but only to the extent it is subject to federal taxation. These 10 states differ on the taxation of retirement income from private-sector sources. Kansas and Massachusetts do not exclude any private-sector retirement income, but most of the others allow a fairly broad exclusion. Kansas residents with an adjusted gross income of less than $75,000 may exclude Social Security income from state taxes. Pennsylvania allows a full exclusion. Alabama excludes income from defined benefit plans. Hawaii excludes income from contributory plans. Illinois and Mississippi exclude income from qualified retirement plans. Louisiana, Michigan and New York cap the private-sector exclusion at $6,000, $34,920 and $20,000, respectively.

Five states (California, Connecticut, Nebraska, Rhode Island, and Vermont) allow no exemptions or tax credits for pension and other retirement income that is counted in federal adjusted gross income. Most in-state government pensions are taxed the same as out-of-state government pensions. However, Arizona, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, New York, and Oklahoma provide greater tax relief plans than they do for out-of-state government pension plans. The District of Columbia also provides greater tax relief for DC government pensions than for state government pensions.

Three states (New Jersey, Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania) do not allow IRA contributions to be deducted from taxable income. Of the three, only Pennsylvania does not tax IRA earnings of taxpayers age 59 ½ years or older, since earnings are treated like pension income, which is tax exempt.

∴Retired Military Pay
Some states provide special tax benefits to military retirees. Others simply follow the federal tax rules. The states that do not tax retired military pay are: Alabama, Alaska, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky*, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi*, Missouri*, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina*, Ohio, Oregon*, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
(*With conditions)

∴Property Taxes
Taxes on land and the buildings on it are the biggest source of revenue for local governments. They are not imposed by states but by the tens of thousands of cities, townships, counties, school districts and other assessing jurisdictions.

The state's role is to specify the maximum rate on the market value of the property, or a percentage of it, as the legal standard for the local assessors to follow. The local assessor determines the value to be taxed. You can't escape property taxes in any state. But you can find significantly low rates in certain parts of the country.

Most states give residents over a certain age a break on their property taxes. With some taxes, you'll need a relatively low income to qualify. Forty states provide either property tax credits or homestead exemptions that limit the value of assessed property subject to tax.

There may be other tax breaks available, depending on where you live. All 50 states offer some type of property tax relief program, such as freezes that will lock in the assessed value of your property once you reach a certain age, or deferral of taxes until the homeowner moves or dies. They ultimately have to be paid. In addition, counties and municipalities often have their own property tax relief plans.

Retirees with low incomes and high housing costs may face property tax bills that are higher than they can manage. Some states target property tax relief to those homeowners bearing the greatest burden. Property tax reform that takes into account a homeowner's ability to pay, such as a so-called "property tax circuit breaker," can better protect low-income homeowners from rising property taxes that accompany rising property values. Targeted property tax relief avoids sharp reductions in funding for locally provided public services and inequities based solely on date of purchase.

♂A property tax circuit breaker prevents property taxes from "overloading" a taxpayer. Under a typical circuit breaker, the state sets a maximum percentage of income that an eligible family can be expected to pay in property taxes. If property taxes exceed this limit, the state then provides a rebate or credit to the taxpayer.

♂Currently, of the 31 states and the District of Columbia with circuit breakers for homeowners, only six and the District of Columbia permit all households to participate in the program without regard to age.

Other property tax relief strategies that may be used to target property tax relief include homestead exemptions which exempt a certain amount of a home's value from taxation, credits to rebate a certain percentage of taxes paid, and deferral programs to allow low-income elderly homeowners to defer payment of property taxes until property is sold.

∴Property Taxes by County
Using data from the 2009 American Community Survey (U.S. Census Bureau) the Tax Foundation, based in Washington, D.C., has published figures on property tax paid by households on owner-occupied housing. It shows median property taxes paid on homes, median home value, taxes as a percentage of home value, median income for homeowners, and taxes as a percent of income. The table include all 793 counties in the United States (excluding Puerto Rico) with populations greater than 65,000. The figures exclude property taxes paid by businesses, renters and others.

∴Inheritance and Estate Taxes
Some states impose a separate tax, called an inheritance tax, on a deceased person's property. The tax is paid by the recipient, not the estate. The rate depends on who inherits the property; usually, spouses and other close relatives pay nothing or a low rate. The states that impose an inheritance tax are: Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Nebraska, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Tennessee.

As for estate taxes, even if your estate isn't big enough to owe federal estate tax, the state may still take a bite. The tax rate is generally far less than the federal estate tax rate. For example, in New Jersey, estates worth more than $675,000 may owe state estate tax. Property left to a surviving spouse, however, is exempt from state estate tax, just as it is exempt from federal estate tax. States that impose an estate tax are: Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington.

∴Tax Burden By State
If all other things are equal, a state with a lower burden is a more attractive place to retire than a state with a higher one. To get a true sense of which state is less expensive, you need to look at state and local tax burdens. Only then do the low tax states stand out.

List of State Taxes
By Lisa Dorward, eHow Contributor

Each state has its own type of taxes. For instance, most states charge an income tax and sales tax but the rates are different. The five states with the highest overall state tax rates are: Maine, New York, Hawaii, Rhode Island and Wisconsin. (The District of Columbia, Washington D.C., actually has the highest local tax at 12.2 percent, but it is not technically a state). The five states with the lowest overall state taxes are: Alaska, New Hampshire, Delaware, Tennessee and Alabama.

∴State Income Tax
Income tax rates vary from state to state, along with the type of income exempt from tax

All but seven states tax the earned income of full and part time workers who reside or work there. Those seven states are: Alaska, Florida, Nevada, South Dakota, Texas and Washington. States that don*t have an income tax often make up for the lost revenue in higher sales taxes--although Alaska does not have an income or a sale tax. The District of Columbia and 27 states exclude social security benefits from income tax. New Hampshire and Tennessee apply income tax only to interest and dividend income.

∴State Sales Tax
Each state decides what products are taxable as well as the tax rate for them.

Although the common name for this tax is ※sales tax,§ the correct term is ※sales and use§ tax because transactions for goods rented or leased can also be subject to this tax. What is exempt from sales tax (such as food, prescription drugs and sometimes clothing) varies from state to state. All states except Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire and Oregon levy a sales tax. The state with the highest sales tax rates is California, with 8.75 percent. Indiana, Mississippi, New Jersey, Rhode Island and Tennessee all levy 7 percent sales tax.

∴Property Tax
Property taxes are set by the state but imposed at the local level

Property tax is technically not a state tax, but rather is determined by the state and imposed by the thousands of individual jurisdictions within a state such as cities, townships, counties and school districts. The state sets the maximum rate that can be charged based on the fair market value of the land and the buildings on it. This is the largest source of revenue for local governments.

∴Fuel Tax
State fuel tax is included in the price at the pump

Every state collects a fuel tax on gasoline, diesel and gasohol. This comes under the category of ※excise taxes,§ that is, taxes on certain commodities. The federal government also levies a fuel tax.

∴Other Excise Taxes

Individual excise taxes are used by states to raise money to pay for state services

Other taxes that can be found in state budgets are: lottery winnings tax, real estate transfer tax, alcohol tax, tobacco tax, a ※gross receipts tax§ (on businesses) and an inheritance or estate tax.

Lowest to Highest Taxes by State

Have you wondered which U.S. State may be better to live in regarding taxes and tax burden? While we cannot escape taxes, we can make decisions which will minimize our overall State tax burden, depending on each of our own financial situations and objectives. In this article, we*re talking about property tax, income tax, and sales tax.

Let*s say you are finished with the &rat-race*, and are ready to plan a move out of your area or State in search of a new lifestyle. Among the many things that you will consider in your selection process, picking a tax friendly area (or better said 每 a less &bad* tax area), should be a high priority item on your check list.

As the current economy remains stagnant, or worsens, the debt burden of cities, states, and the federal government are rapidly approaching a death-spiral of compounding debt. More are agreeing that inflation will become a bigger problem while the economy remains stagnant (stagflation). There is little doubt that taxes, including State taxes will be on the increase as governments look for more revenues.

If looking to retire, or to leave behind the risks that often accompany a leveraged 每 higher income lifestyle, or looking to protect yourself from the consequences of a large scale economic downturn or collapse, your new lifestyle will likely be one with a lesser income than before 每 meaning that the various State taxes will be a concern.

Regarding the various taxes, you may more concerned about one versus another. For example, the income tax of a given State may be less important to you than say, the property tax of the county or town since your income may be relatively low (retirement) but your property taxes will always be there and may continue to rise. In a worst case scenario, high inflation could potentially rapidly balloon your property tax to unmanageable levels, so choose your location carefully.

Here are a few State tax statistics which may be interesting to you, sourced and compiled from a number of places including RetirementLiving.com, Wikipedia, Census.gov/govs/statetax, State Government Tax Collections 2009, and the TaxFoundation.org.

∴State Sales Tax

Except for large or frequent expensive purchases, State sales tax may be of lesser impact to your overall tax burden or concern, when compared to property taxes and income taxes. For example, you would have to purchase more than $40,000 of taxable products taxed at a 7% sales tax to be equivalent to an annual $3,000 property tax bill.

Rates are rounded to the nearest 0.1 decimal. This sales tax list includes the base rate plus the maximum local surtax that may exist in that State (this surtax inclusion is typically only on certain goods and may slightly skew some State results 每 but I wanted to include a worst-case scenario). Your sales tax rates may be lower if living outside of the surtaxed area or not purchasing a surtaxed product. This should still provide a good general idea of where each state ranks.

∴State Property Tax

Taxes on land and the buildings built on it are the largest source of revenue for local governments. Property taxes are not imposed by the States, but by the tens of thousands of cities, townships, counties, school districts and other assessing jurisdictions.

You can*t escape property taxes in any state. But you can find significantly low rates in certain parts of the country.

Having sorted through a list of home property taxes, listed by median price per county, and then averaging the property taxes of all counties in each state, the following list of home property taxes by State should give you a general indication of costs. For finer detail, each individual county would need to be checked as property taxes can vary substantially based on region and the home*s assessed value itself.

There are many factors that go into one*s formula to decide the best place to retire, or the best place to move to, because we each have our own individual notions of what that is.

However, near the top of the list of factors or concerns should be property tax, income tax, and sales tax. Also, nearly just as important, do not forget to research the fiscal situation of the state, city, or town that you are contemplating moving to. There are many of these that are themselves on the verge of bankruptcy. They will be the first to raise your taxes.

List of Tax Free States
By Bryan Cohen, eHow Contributor

Several states have a much lower tax burden than others.

While there are no truly tax-free states, there are many that do not tax occupants for income, property, sales or other types of taxes. Some low-tax states are better than others depending on how you earn money. For example, if you make most of your money off dividends, you are better suited for Texas, which has no dividends tax, than for Tennessee, which has no income tax except for dividends.

∴State Income Tax

In the United States, there are seven states that have no income tax. These states are Florida, South Dakota, Texas, Washington, Wyoming, Alaska and Nevada. Even though these states are exempt from state income tax, income will still be taxed at a federal level no matter what state you are in. New Hampshire and Tennessee tax dividend and interest income, but not other types of income.

∴Pension Taxation

There are 10 states that do not levy state income tax on pensions. This means that anybody earning a pension in these states will not pay state taxes on them. These states include Hawaii, Kansas, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Pennsylvania, Alabama, Illinois, Louisiana, Michigan and New York. In addition, the seven states with no income tax at all do not tax pensions. This is especially important for those of retirement age who are looking for a lower tax burden for the rest of their lives.

∴Sales Tax

There are multiple states that have no sales tax on purchases. These sales tax-free states are Delaware, New Hampshire, Oregon, Alaska and Montana. A lack of sales tax can make a major difference when making such large purchases as a car or boat. This lack of sales tax applies to anyone making a purchase in the state.

∴General Tax Burden

If you average out the tax burdens that an individual has to pay, the lowest burden according to a Tax Foundation report is in Alaska. Other low tax burden states include Nevada, Wyoming, Florida and New Hampshire. These tax burdens do not include the general cost of living which can be quite high in states like Florida and Alaska.

What States Have the Lowest Tax Rates?
By Shanika Chapman, eHow Contributor

In 1913, the 16th amendment to the Constitution was added, introducing Americans to a permanent income tax. Since then, state governments have found numerous ways to tax Americans and some states have significantly lower taxes than others.

∴Function

States collect taxes to fund public education, social services, highways, roads and public safety, such as water services, waste removal, police and fire protection, and Metro Transit and parking, parks and recreation, neighborhood services, airports and zoos.

∴Types of Taxes

States raise money by assessing sales taxes, excise taxes, license taxes, income taxes, intangible taxes, property taxes and inheritance taxes. Not all states collect the same taxes. For example, only 11 states have an inheritance tax. These include Connecticut, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Nebraska, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania and Tennessee.

∴Misconceptions

A common misconception is that states without an income tax are cheaper to live in than states that collect income tax. In reality, they may make up for it elsewhere. One must look at the overall tax burden and how each type of tax will affect him in order to determine which state will offer the lowest tax rate.

∴Preferences

All states assess a cigarette tax. However, in South Carolina the tax is just $.07 per pack. In Rhode Island, on the other hand, the tax is $3.00 per pack. A heavy smoker might find it cheaper to pay taxes in South Carolina than Rhode Island.

∴Overall Tax Burden

The overall tax burden considers all state and local taxes. As of 2009, Alaskans have the lowest tax burden at 6.4 percent, followed by Nevada at 6.6 percent. The highest tax burden is New Jersey at 11.8 percent and New York at 11.7 percent.

List of No State Income Tax States
By Joseph Nicholson, eHow Contributor

Nine U.S. states did not collect income tax in 2009 though they did collect property and sales taxes. The total per capita tax burden by state varies between roughly 6 and 12 percent, with the overall tax burden lightest in states with no income tax. Per capita income is calculated by combining the total tax revenues and total incomes by the number of residents.
http://www.irs.gov/efile/article/0,,id=130684,00.html

∴Alaska

Alaska consistently leads the nation as the state with the lowest overall tax burden. There is no state income tax, and other state taxes are rather low.

There is no state income tax in Florida. The state and local taxes totaled $3,441 per person in 2008, 7.4 percent of the $46,293 per capita income. The sales and use tax in Florida was 6 percent in 2008.

∴South Dakota

In South Dakota, where there is no state income tax, state and local taxes accounted for about 7.9 percent of per capita income. That is a total in taxes per person of $3,079 versus a per capita income of $39,103. A sales tax rate of 4 percent applies in South Dakota.

∴Washington

Washington state has no state income tax. Nevertheless, at $4,334, per capita state and local taxes account for almost 9 percent of the total per capita income of $48,574. The sales tax rate is 6.5 percent. The 2008 median property tax rate was 0.86 percent of home value.

∴New Hampshire

In New Hampshire, per capita state and local income taxes totaled $3,642 in 2008, which was 7.6 percent of the per capita income of $48,033 that same year. There is no state income tax in New Hampshire. There is no sales tax in New Hampshire, but the 2008 median property tax rate was 1.7 percent of home value.

∴Texas

Which State Has the Highest Income Tax Rate?
By Kofi Bofah, eHow Contributor

∴Which State Has the Highest Income Tax Rate?

Identifying which state has the highest income tax rate is a less straightforward proposition than you might think. Tax law is dynamic, and each individual state calculates income tax bills using its own metrics, which do not always make for easy comparisons. Generally, states subtract deductions from federal adjusted gross income, prior to charging taxes at a flat rate or progressively.

In terms of tax rates alone, California, Hawaii and Oregon are the only states for the tax year 2010 that have tax brackets carrying income tax rates greater than 10 percent (with Rhode Island topping out at a close 9.9 percent).

∴Flat vs. Progressive Taxes

Flat-tax states calculate taxes at the same rate for all citizens, irrespective of income. Tennessee carries the highest flat-tax rate at 6 percent, while the Commonwealth of Massachusetts is second at 5.3 percent of federal taxable income.

Lower-income people will find Tennessee and Massachusetts taxes to be high, as they would face lower tax bills with the progressive tax structures of other states.

Progressive tax policy is structured to charge higher levels of taxes for top earners. Tax rates increase at each bracket, or range of income. Individually, all income is not taxed at the same rate. Your household's total progressive tax bill is the sum of taxes charged at every marginal level of income.

California, Hawaii, Oregon and Rhode Island have the highest income tax rates for wealthier taxpayers.

∴California

California's progressive tax rates increase quickly to tax the middle class at high levels. California's upper level marginal tax rates are 8.25, 9.55 and 10.55 percent for taxable income brackets greater than $37,233, $47,055 and $1 million, respectively. The 8.25 percent tax rate for filers in the $37,233 to $47,054 tax bracket is behind only Oregon. Oregon taxpayers who earn over $7,600 in taxable income are taxed at a 9 percent rate.

∴Hawaii

Hawaii's upper level marginal tax rates are 8.25, 9, 10 and 11 percent for taxable income brackets greater than $48,000, $150,000, $175,000 and $200,000, respectively. Hawaii tax rates increase quickly to tax the upper middle class, and the 11 percent rate ties with Oregon as the highest rate in the United States for any bracket.

Hawaiian tax rates are effectively higher at this level because the 11 percent rate begins at $200,000, rather than $250,000 for Oregon.

∴Oregon

Oregon carries the highest tax rates across almost all tax brackets, where even the poor are taxed at high levels. Oregon tax rates are 5, 7, 9, 10.8 and 11 percent for taxable income that is greater than zero, $3,050, $7,650, $125,000 and $250,000, respectively.

∴New Jersey

Although Rhode Island comes in tight with California, Hawaii and Oregon as a high-tax state, only the wealthiest Rhode Islanders pay the 9 and 9.9 percent income tax for income that is greater than $171,850 and $373,650, respectively.

Where You'll Pay the Most in State and Local Taxes
States with the highest tax burdens
From Tonya Moreno, CPA, former Contributing Writer

Some states have high sales taxes and property taxes, but no income taxes. Other states have no sales tax, but high income taxes. So how do you compare them? How do you know where you*ll pay the least tax? The Tax Foundation has created a list that answers this very question. Their list of state tax burdens takes all state and local taxes into account and ranks the states based on their overall estimated tax burden.

∴States With The Lowest Taxes

To rank the state*s tax burdens, the Tax Foundation compared the total taxes that state residents pay as a percentage of per capita income. Included in the total taxes are local taxes such as property taxes and local sales taxes. The states whose residents pay the least in taxes are:
♂Alaska at 6.4% of income
♂Nevada at 6.6% of income
♂Wyoming at 7% of income
♂Florida at 7.4% of income
♂New Hampshire at 7.6% of income

It*s interesting to note that none of these states have an individual income tax.

∴States With The Highest Taxes

At the bottom of the Tax Foundation*s rankings were these states, with the highest tax burdens in the nation:
♂New Jersey at 11.8% of income
♂New York at 11.7% of income
♂Connecticut at 11.1% of income
♂Maryland at 10.8% of income
♂Hawaii at 10.6% of income

New York and New Jersey consistently come in on top as the highest taxing states. These two states have topped the list of the worst states for business taxes and New York counties have made the top of the list for the having highest property taxes in the nation. New York also has some of the highest sales taxes in the nation and all of the states on the list have high income tax rates for their top tax brackets.

∴Things to Think About

Each state has a unique mix of taxes that affect both residents and non-residents. This makes creating a comprehensive ranking of overall tax burdens a difficult undertaking and one that can be looked at in different ways. These different ways of estimating tax burdens has actually ignited a feud between the Tax Foundation and the Census Bureau who publishes their own state by state list. The Tax Foundation has criticized the Census Bureau's list for not including local taxes and for only looking at the amount of taxes collected by the states, which could be paid by either residents or non-residents such as tourists. The Tax Foundation's list takes into account state and local taxes such as property taxes and local sales taxes. They then rank the states based on how much state residents pay in state and local taxes as a percentage of per capita income. The Census Bureau has criticized the Tax Foundation*s list because they frequently change their methodology and, for example, if a Connecticut resident works in New York and pays taxes to New York, those tax dollars are counted in Connecticut*s tax burden since the taxes were paid by a Connecticut resident. The Tax Foundation has responded to this criticism on their website.

Since this is not an exact science, but just an estimation of state and local tax burdens, it may be worthwhile to look at both lists and the methods used to compare the states and draw your own conclusions.

State Tax - How much will I have to pay if I move to another state?
State Tax Information and Forms
By Diane Schmidt, About.com Guide

State income tax is one of the major forms of taxes that will affect you when you move to a new state. Don't forget, though, that sales tax and property tax will also change and should be considered as you plan your move.

∴Facts About State Taxes
Revenue is collected by the government in several different areas, in particular through sales tax, income tax, property tax, estate tax, excise tax, licensing tax, etc... In some states you may have to pay into all the coffers or just some; it varies from state to state.

As you consider changes to your tax rate if you move states, keep in mind where your tax dollars go. Perhaps your income tax will decline, but property taxes are higher than where you currently live; maybe the dollars are being invested locally in better infrastructure or maybe with lower state income tax, your child's education may not be as well supported. Just some pros and cons to consider before you check the tax tables and make your decision.

∴State Income Tax
There are a few states that don't collect income tax, with some of the larger states being Florida, Texas and Washington. Other income tax-free states include, South Dakota, Alaska, Nevada and Wyoming. While income tax isn't collected, the tax dollars must be generated somehow, so always look for other ways that the government may collect, such as gambling taxes in Nevada.

Six states have a flat rate on all income, including Indiana, Illinois, Colorado, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and Michigan. The rates vary from a low 3% in Illinois to 5.3% in Massachusetts.

Generally, forty one states collect revenue via income tax. Two states, New Hampshire and Tennessee, collect taxes on income derived from dividends and interest only, while thirty five states based your income taxes on federal returns.

For more information on income tax rates and tax preparation, check out the Guide to Tax Planning. This site also provides great tips for saving money on your tax return. For the latest tax tables, including comparison between states, see The Federation of Tax Administrators.

∴State Sales Tax
All but five states collect sales tax on purchased items. These exemptions include Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire and Oregon. Depending on the state, you'll either be paying an additional tax on top of the state sales tax or simply a flat rate on goods. States such as Connecticut, Hawaii, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia have a flat rate schedule, while the remaining states allow the county and/or city to add taxes in addition to the state sales tax. Depending on where you live, you may be paying more for goods than if you drove to the next city or county.

States also vary in what items are considered taxable. Some will include clothing, while excluding certain types of food. Find out before you move by checking your local state government website.
http://www.usa.gov/Agencies/State-and-Territories.shtml

∴State Property Tax
While property taxes are collected at the local level, by counties, cities and towns, the rate is capped by the state government, meaning that the local government cannot exceed the maximum. This also means that rates will vary by location, so do your research first to find the lowest rates in the state. Remember, though, that property taxes are the primary means of generating revenue for local use, with much of it going towards education, roads and often emergency services.

Most states do have property tax relief programs in place for those who are struggling to keep up. Again, programs vary from state to state, so it's worth looking into if you think you may qualify for assistance, credit or a rebate.

Some of the highest state taxes in the country are located in the Northeast, such as New Jersey, New Hampshire, New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts. Lowest rates belong to the Southern states which include Arkansas, Mississippi, West Virginia, Alabama and Louisiana. Again, for more information on your particular state, go to the official government page found here.
