New Hampshire only collects income tax on qualifying investment, dividend, and interest income. The tax rates on this page only apply to qualifying investment income, and are not imposed on personal income from wages or any income listed on a W-4 form.
New Hampshire levies an income tax on the following types of income:
- Dividends from corporate stock
- Interest payments from bonds or notes
- Interest payments from a fiduciary or trust fund
- Capital gains distributions from certain mutual funds
Not all forms of investment and interest income are taxable. Interest earned on a bank account's balance, tax-free bonds, and most ordinary capital gains are exempt from the New Hampshire income tax.
New Hampshire has set income tax exemption amounts for single & joint filers which allow you to earn a certain amount of taxable income without paying taxes. You only have to pay state income tax if the amount of income you earned from taxable investment and interest sources is greater than the applicable tax exemption for your filing status.
Because the New Hampshire income tax applies only to certain types of investment and interest income, retired taxpayers living off investments and retirement accounts often have the heaviest tax exposure. To relieve retired taxpayers, New Hampshire has several special tax exemptions for retired taxpayers over the age of 65.
While most New Hampshire residents will not have to file a New Hampshire income tax return or pay New Hampshire income tax, the Federal Income Tax is still applicable to all taxpayers.
Note: Our tax estimator tool assumes all income is from wages, so the New Hampshire income tax will not be calculated.
