Keep in mind that these are the marginal tax rates.  Each state has different rules about how they figure the amount of your income that is subject to taxes. The amount of income that is subject to the state taxes will vary.

Alaska, Florida, Nevada, South Dakota, Texas, Washington and Wyoming all have no state income taxes.

The median top tax marginal state income tax rate is 5.99%.
The highest state income tax rate is a tie between Hawaii and Oregon both charging 11%.  Those tax rates kick in if your taxable income levels are over $200,000 or $250,000 respectively.


The Tax Foundation page was current as of March 3rd, 2011 but all tax rates are subject to change.
