Wisconsin state

Wisconsin fiscal year starts from July 01 the year before to June 30 the current year.

Similar to the calculation of federal income tax, Wisconsin income tax can be worked out in 5 simple steps:

  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

State payroll tax

Some states have payroll taxes such as:

  • State Unemployment Insurance (SUI)
  • State Disability Insurance (SDI)
  • State Family Leave Insurance (FLI)

However, Wisconsin has nope of these additional paycheck taxes. Only federal FICA taxes will be deducted from your paycheck.
