Alaska state income tax
Alaska has a population of under 1 million (2019) and is the largest state, twice the size of Texas. More than 80% of the state’s revenues come from the oil and gas industry. The median household income is $73,181 (2017).
- zero income tax rate ranges
- 0.5% State Unemployment Insurance (SUI) up to $43,600 taxable wage
- no standard deductions and exemptions
Alaska tax year starts from July 01 the year before to June 30 the current year. So the tax year 2021 will start from July 01 2020 to June 30 2021.
Calculating your Alaska state income tax is similar to the steps we listed on our Federal paycheck calculator:
- figure out your filing status
- work out your adjusted gross income [Total annual income – Adjustments = Adjusted gross income]
- calculate your taxable income [Adjusted gross income – (Post-tax deductions + Exemptions) = Taxable income]
- understand your tax liability [Taxable income × Tax rate = Tax liability]
- minus any additional tax withholdings [Total annual income – (Tax liability + All deductions + Withholdings) = Your annual paycheck]
