State Tax Rate Questions

If a state imposes income tax, it will have its own set of state tax rates. These rates usually vary based on the amount of income that an individual has earned. However, there are a few states that do not impose income tax at all. In some of these states, a resident could be subjected to local tax instead. Listed below are a few questions answered by the Experts on issues related to state tax rates.

What is the state tax rate for lottery winnings in the State of Florida?

There is no state tax in the State of Florida. Therefore, there would be no state tax rate for lottery winnings either. However, if an individual in the State of Florida has won a lottery, they would have to report the winnings on their federal tax return as earnings and pay taxes to the federal government instead.

If an individual earns income in another state, will the income be taxed at the resident state’s tax rate?

The income that was earned out of the state of residence will be taxed in the state the individual worked in at that state’s tax rate. . It is important to note that most states that do charge income tax usually have two different types of taxation. The first being for residents who have earned income that originated in that state and the second being for non-residents who have earned income in the same state Finally, if the individual lives in a state that also charges income tax they may receive credit for the payment of taxes made in another state.

If a person is trying to figure their income tax, where do they begin?

If a person is trying to figure out what their income tax will be, they will first have to find out if the state that they live in charges income tax and therefore what the state tax rates are. Thereafter, they will also have to find out if there any local taxes that are applicable. Sometimes, even when a state doesn’t impose a personal tax, a city could impose a local tax and vice versa.

What is the state tax rate for capital gains in the State of Alabama?

The State of Alabama currently does not have a separate state tax rate for capital gains. The way the State of Alabama treats capital gains is like any other type of income and therefore, it is taxed at the normal state tax rate.

State tax rates will vary from state to state. And if an individual earns an income in another state, the income earned will subject to the state tax rate of the income source state. It is common for anyone who is filing their returns to have questions on state tax rates and city local tax rates.

    We are being audited for supposedly for high business legal deductions for 2011. We just waived the "statute of limitations" to give them another year. The auditor is still not finished with 2011. We just rec'd notice to produce 2012 legal deductions and business expenses. Should we tell the auditor about 2012 now or just send in the documentation for 2012 and hope that he finishes 2011 soon? Thanks!
