Find out the income tax rates for your state.

Americans pay many different taxes, and governments at the federal, state, and local level all need revenue to fund the programs and services they provide. In 43 states, state income tax provisions apply to those with income connected to that state, and tax rates can vary greatly from place to place.

To find out where your state ends up, we created the following table. It's based on information collected from the various state taxing authorities, and it also uses the Tax Foundation's research on state tax laws. So without further ado, here are the state income tax rates for 2017.
