Understanding your New Hampshire paycheck
The enchanting state of New Hampshire may captivate you with its stunning landscapes, but have you ever considered the fascinating elements that make up your paycheck in the Granite State?
Every time you get paid, a portion of your earnings go towards federal income taxes and FICA (Federal Insurance Contributions Act) taxes. If your income surpasses $200,000, you’ll be subject to an additional 0.9% Medicare tax.
The financial journey continues as you complete your Form W-4, influencing how much federal income tax is withheld from your paycheck. The pay frequency you choose – weekly, biweekly, or monthly – also shapes your take-home pay.
Your marital status and various pre-tax deductions (401(k), HSA, etc), weave another layer of complexity into your paycheck. These deductions reduce your taxable income, potentially lowering your tax liability and leaving you with more money.
The state income tax situation in New Hampshire is as unique as its breathtaking scenery. The state levies income tax solely on interest and dividends, allowing residents to keep more of their hard-earned dollars. However, New Hampshire does offer personal exemptions, further contributing to the intricate tapestry of your paycheck.
Finally, the last piece of the puzzle is post-tax deductions. These may include garnishments, health insurance premiums, or charitable contributions, which are taken out after calculating taxes. Understanding these deductions helps you better appreciate the complexity and artistry of your New Hampshire paycheck.

State payroll tax
There is no state-level payroll tax.
State income tax brackets
New Hampshire does tax income from interest and dividends, however. The Interest and Dividends Tax is a flat rate of 5%. The standard exemption for that tax is $2,400 for Single and $4,800 for married persons filing jointly, so taxpayers with income from interest and dividends below that amount do not have to pay any taxes. Additional exemptions of $1,200 are available to residents who are either 65 years or older, blind or disabled, and unable to work.
Taxpayers with income from interest and dividends above their total exemption will pay taxes only on the amount that exceeds the exemption. For example, a single filer earns $6,000 in interest annually. They would pay $180 because the 5% tax only applies to the $3,600 above their exemption.

There are no state-level standard deductions.
There are state-level exemptions for all types of filers.
