Texas income taxes
One of the key financial benefits of living in the Lone Star State is that Texas does not impose a state income tax on its residents. Whether you earn $20,000 a year or $200,000, the state of Texas will not take a percentage of your earned income, providing significant savings for many residents.
Similarly to the state income tax, Texas also does not impose a state payroll tax or local income tax, allowing for greater take-home pay for employees and more savings for employers.
As Texas does not levy an income tax, there are no state standard deductions or state exemptions to factor into residents’ annual tax calculations.
