Thanks, ***** ***** while I look up their rates...........................

Expert:  TaxRobin replied 2 months ago.

Indiana has a flat statewide income tax. 2017, that rate is 3.23%. However, many counties charge an additional income tax. What is your specific county so I can check on that please

Expert:  TaxRobin replied 2 months ago.

So far I can advice that 3.23% would cover your Indiana rate but without the specific county to see if their rate that is all I will be able to tell you.

Expert:  TaxRobin replied 2 months ago.

Any call offer is site generated, just ignore it. I need the county still though to advise on the full rate

Please let me know if you need more information.
If not then scroll up to see the STARS to rate so I am credited.

Hi just checking back to see if you posted the specific county yet.

If you do not want to tell me your county (for some reason) I would suggest then that you have at least 5% withheld for state. Federal and state are totally different
