Calculating your Illinois 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 [Net income – Adjustments = Adjusted gross income]
  3. calculate your taxable income [Adjusted gross income – (Itemized deductions + Exemptions) = Taxable income]
  4. understand your income tax liability [Taxable income × Income tax rate = Income tax liability]
  5. minus any tax liability, deductions, withholdings [Net income – (Income tax liability + Pre-tax deductions + Post-tax deductions + Withholdings) = Your paycheck]
