Calculating your New Hampshire 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

There is no state-level payroll tax.

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. Say, for example, a single filer earns $6,000 in interest annually. They would pay $180 in taxes, because the 5% tax only applies to the $3,600 above their exemption.
