|Tax Bracket (Single)||Marginal Tax Rate|
|Tax Bracket (Married)||Marginal Tax Rate|
Hawaii has twelve marginal tax brackets, ranging from 1.40% (the lowest Hawaii tax bracket) to 11.00% (the highest Hawaii tax bracket). Each marginal rate only applies to earnings within the applicable marginal tax bracket.
In Hawaii, different tax brackets are applicable to different filing types. Married couples filing their Hawaii income tax return jointly will usually have wider tax brackets than those filing separately or as an individual.
You can think of the bracketed income tax as a flat amount for all of the money you earned up to your highest tax bracket, plus a marginal percentage of any amount you earned over that.
Technically, you don't have just one "tax bracket" - you pay all of the Hawaii marginal tax rates from the lowest tax bracket to the tax bracket in which you earned your last dollar. For comparison purposes, however, your Hawaii tax bracket is the tax bracket in which your last earned dollar in any given tax period falls.
Please note: Our Hawaii tax brackets are currently from tax year 2014. Many states adjust their tax brackets yearly, and we will update the Hawaii tax brackets for 2015 as soon as they become available.

You can use the income tax estimator to the left to calculate your approximate Hawaii and Federal income tax based on the most recent tax brackets.
Keep in mind that this estimator assumes all income is from wages, assumes the standard deduction, and does not account for tax credits.

When calculating your Hawaii income tax, keep in mind that the Hawaii state income tax brackets are only applied to your adjusted gross income (AGI) after you have made any qualifying deductions.
Qualifying deductions might include an itemized deduction, the Hawaii standard deduction, exemptions for dependants, business expenses, etc.
Remember that Hawaii may have very different deduction laws from the Federal Income Tax, so you may have to write a whole new list of deductions for your Hawaii income tax return.
