*Disclaimer: Due to the fact that state tax laws are created independently by each state on different timetables, the state taxes owed that are calculated here are rough estimates of what you may end up owing, and are not meant to be taken as exact calculations. You can find a list of caveats and assumptions of our methodology below:
- Our state tax calculations use federal exemptions and deductions, and not individual state ones, due to the fact that many state-level deductions aren't even finalized by end of a calendar year
- If you are calculating 2022 state taxes, this calculator currently use 2021 numbers as very few states have updated their 2022 tax code yet. However, this should serve as a pretty good estimate of future taxes.
- ** Every state except for CT, HI, MA include long term capital gains (LTCG) as part of their taxable income and it is reflected in this cell.
- ** AR, ND, NM, SC, WI all allow individuals to apply a percentage deduction based on their LTCG. Your LTCG is reduced by that amount for these calculations and is reflected in this cell.
- ** VT only considers a gain as a long term capital gain if held over 3 years. That is not factored in these calculation - we use the traditional '1 year' definition for simplicity purposes.
- *** CT and HI are the only states that tax LTCG and short term capital gains (STCG) together at a flat rate, separate from Income. These are both included in this cell.
- *** MA combines LTCG with income, but splits out STCG into it's own category. STCG is thus reflected in this cell.
