New York has eight marginal tax brackets, ranging from 4.00% (the lowest New York tax bracket) to 8.82% (the highest New York tax bracket). Each marginal rate only applies to earnings within the applicable marginal tax bracket.

In New York, different tax brackets are applicable to different filing types. Married couples filing their New York 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.

What is my New York tax bracket?

Technically, you don't have just one "tax bracket" - you pay all of the New York marginal tax rates from the lowest tax bracket to the tax bracket in which you earned your last dollar. For comparison purposes, however, your New York tax bracket is the tax bracket in which your last earned dollar in any given tax period falls.

Please note: Our New York tax brackets are currently from tax year 2014. Many states adjust their tax brackets yearly, and we will update the New York tax brackets for 2015 as soon as they become available.

New York Tax Estimator

You can use the income tax estimator to the left to calculate your approximate New York 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.

Deductions

When calculating your New York income tax, keep in mind that the New York 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 New York standard deduction, exemptions for dependants, business expenses, etc.

Remember that New York 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 New York income tax return.
