Need all parameters of all states tax...

Discussion in 'Tax' started by Alain Boisvert, Dec 12, 2003.

  1. I'm looking look for all parameters (Tax tables, tax rates,
    personal and dependency exemptions, standardised and
    itemized deductions, credits and so on) to be able to
    calculate individual income taxes, marginal tax rates at
    many levels of income, top combined marginal rates, tax
    thresholds, etc... for many types of families and for all
    U.S. states. It's for analysis purpose...

    Could somebody tell me if these products contains this information ?

    1. "All States Quickfinder"

    2. All States Tax Handbook, 2003 Edition

  2. The Quickfinder book probably contains more complete rate
    tables, etc., than the RIA handbook (or its CCH equivalent).
    The latter publications (as I recall) simply give a brief
    summary or rates, while the Quickfinder book sets forth the
    tables in full (as I recall).

    However, that said, NONE of these publications are going to
    cover ALL conceivable situations such as special credits or
    limitations, etc. The Quickfinder book probably has
    everything you would need to prepare relatively simple "wage
    earner" returns for most states. But, beyond that, you will
    probably have to download specific forms and instructions
    from the states in question.

    Can't you just go to those websites and check them out
    yourself? There are 43 states with a state income tax,
    that's a lot of research to ask for on a FREE newgroup post!

    Since you apparently know the answer, which 7 do not?

    I believe the following jurisdictions do not levy a tax
    on earned income:

    Alaska, Florida, Nevada, New Hampshire, Texas, Wyoming,
    and Washington.

    There are 43 states with a state income tax.
    Texas has an income tax on corporations and LLCs. It is
    called a Franchise tax; but, it is computed as 4.5% of net

  6. Since you're speaking of earned income, Don't forget
    Tennessee, the Volunteer state.

  7. A rule of thumb in Texas for elected officials used to be
    this: "Once you are elected to public office you can be
    reelected, regardless of what you do or don't do in office,
    as long as you don't get caught in bed with a live man or a
    dead woman." The part about the live man no longer applies.

    Another rule of thumb, perhaps the number one rule in state
    politics, is that support for a state income tax guarantees
    your failure at the ballot box.

  8. The same is generally true here in Washington state.

  9. While most of my colleagues and I agree that the franchise
    tax is a disguised income tax, I challenge you to find an
    elected or appointed official in Texas who will agree with
    us. They continue to hold that Texas does NOT have an
    income tax.

    What they'll also fail to concede is that the franchise tax,
    when applied to S corporations and most LLCs, is actually a
    personal income tax.

  10. That means then our governor is a dead man. Would you
    believe that he, a Republican, actually proposed an income
    tax increase? This was voted down 2 - 1 by the voters.
    yes, it was a constitutional issue.
