Calculating your Alaska state income tax is similar to the steps we listed on our Federal paycheck calculator:

  1. figure out your filing status
  2. work out your adjusted gross income [Total annual income – Adjustments = Adjusted gross income]
  3. calculate your taxable income [Adjusted gross income – (Post-tax deductions + Exemptions) = Taxable income]
  4. understand your tax liability [Taxable income × Tax rate = Tax liability]
  5. determine whether your tax liability is more than your tax credits and withheld
    • Tax liability – (Credits + Withheld) = What you owe or
    • (Credits + Withheld) – Tax liability = Tax refunds
