Understanding your New York paycheck

When it comes to your New York paycheck, understanding the ins and outs of federal income taxes and FICA taxes is a must. After all, these taxes make up a significant portion of your hard-earned money. Federal income tax rates are progressive, increasing as your income does. On the other hand, FICA taxes are deducted at a flat rate.

High-income earners should note that for those making over $200,000, an Additional Medicare Tax of 0.9% kicks in, bumping the Medicare portion of FICA taxes from 1.45% to 2.35%. However, the Social Security portion remains at 6.2%.

Marital status and pre-tax deductions are important factors that can impact your take-home pay. Contributions to retirement accounts reduce your taxable income, which leads to lower taxes.

There’s more to consider in the Empire State than just federal taxes. New York has a progressive state income tax system, with rates ranging from 4% to 8.82%. A “tax benefit recapture” supplemental tax may also apply to high earners, gradually phasing out certain tax benefits.

If you work in New York City, you’ll also face local income tax. The rates range from 3.078% to 3.876% depending on your income level, adding an extra layer of tax complexity to your paycheck.

New York also has a state payroll tax called the Employer Compensation Expense Tax (ECET), which employers rather than employees pay. This tax is aimed at alleviating the burden of the federal cap on state and local tax (SALT) deductions for businesses.

State standard deductions and exemptions play a role in determining your taxable income. In New York, standard deductions vary by filing status, while personal exemptions are available for taxpayers, their spouses, and dependents. These exemptions can help lower your overall tax liability.

Finally, post-tax deductions may be a part of your New York paycheck. These include deductions for life insurance premiums, union dues, and charitable contributions. While they don’t reduce your taxable income, they can still help you budget and save.

Calculate your New York paycheck

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

  1. Determine your gross income
    • Annual salary
      Annual salary = Gross income
    • Hourly wage
      Hourly wage × Hours worked per day × Days worked per week × Weeks worked per year = Your weekly paycheck
  2. Work out your total federal income tax
    1. Gross income adjusted
      Gross income − Pre-tax deductions = Gross income adjusted
    2. Federal taxable income
      Gross income adjusted − Federal standard/itemized deductions = Federal taxable income
    3. Federal income tax liability
      Federal taxable income × Federal income tax rate = Federal income tax liability
    4. Federal payroll tax liability
      Gross income adjusted × Federal payroll tax rate = Federal payroll tax liability
  3. Calculate your total New York state income tax
    1. State taxable income
      Gross income adjusted − (State standard/itemized deductions + State exemptions) = State taxable income
    2. State income tax liability
      State taxable income × State income tax rate = State income tax liability
    3. State payroll tax liability
      Gross income adjusted × State payroll tax rate = State payroll tax liability
  4. Derive your local income tax liability
    (Gross income adjusted or State taxable income) × Local income tax rate = Local income tax liability
  5. Figure out your net pay
    Gross income − (Total income tax liability + Total payroll tax liability + Total pre-tax deductions + Total post-tax deductions + Total withholdings) = Your net pay
  6. Divide your net pay by your pay frequency
    • Daily
      Your net pay / Days worked per week / Weeks worked per year = Your daily paycheck
    • Weekly
      Your net pay / 52 = Your weekly paycheck
    • Bi-weekly
      Your net pay / 26 = Your bi-weekly paycheck
    • Semi-monthly
      Your net pay / 24 = Your semi-monthly paycheck
    • Monthly
      Your net pay / 12 = Your monthly paycheck
    • Quarterly
      Your net pay / 4 = Your quarterly paycheck
    • Semi-annual
      Your net pay / 2 = Your semi-annual paycheck
    • Annual
      Your net pay = Your annual paycheck

State payroll tax

One of the few states that have payroll tax is New York. Therefore, your paycheck will have federal FICA and state insurance taxes deductions.
