The amazing New York tax calculator helps you calculate how much of your adjusted gross income (AGI) you will devote to taxes during 2022. We know New York is one of the most expensive cities in the world, and the fact that it has extra taxes compared to other states makes it more complicated to calculate. Thus, we have created the New York income tax calculator so you can get a pretty realistic approach to the amount of taxes you will have to pay in April and plan accordingly.

The New York paycheck calculator covers a wide range of topics, including effective tax rates, tax brackets, state taxes, deductions, and even tax credits, so keep reading to find out how to calculate your New York state income tax.

What taxes are included in the New York tax calculator?

The taxes a New York citizen has to pay include the state income tax, the local income tax, and the general ones: the FICA tax and the federal income tax.

So what is adjusted gross income (AGI):

🙋 AGI is gross income reduced by adjustments such as tuition costs, interest on student loans, alimony payments, and contributions to retirement accounts.

Once we have our AGI, we can proceed with the federal tax rate:

How to use the New York state tax calculator?

Before we start, we need a set of information, including your filing status, as indicated in the New York income tax rate table we shared above. Then:

  1. Suppose you are a single filer with an AGI of $43,000 living in New York City and want to know your 2022 total income tax. Let's start with your FICA, which will be: $43, ⁣000×7.65%\small \$43,\!000 \times 7.65 \% . The result is $3,290.

  2. Now, it is time for your federal income tax. After considering the 2022 deductions we showed above, your taxable income is $30,050 (that is because $43, ⁣000$12, ⁣950=$30, ⁣050\small \$43,\!000 - \$12,\!950 = \$30,\!050). Consequently, considering the federal tax progressive income, you pay $1,028 plus 12% of the amount over $10,275, which equals a total federal tax of $3,401.

    Let's explain that a bit more: try the New York state tax calculator and in the Results section press Display and select: Add federal income tax brackets. You will see a table like the one below:

federalTaxBracketSingleNewYork

In that table, you will notice that you reach the 12% bracket, but your income is only partially taxed at that percentage. It is the 11.32% effective tax rate at which your income is evaluated.

  1. We continue calculating the New York state income tax. Here you could go ahead and check the other display option: add state income tax brackets.

    To learn how to calculate it, follow the next steps:

    • Subtract the deductions and exemptions. This means we have an AGI of $43, ⁣000$8,000\small \$43,\!000 - \$8,000, according to the tables above. Consequently, our taxable income is $35,000.

    • According to the bottom table, since we are in the $13,901-$80,650 bracket, we must pay $600 plus 5.85% of the amount over $13,900 as taxes. In other words, $600+($35, ⁣000$13, ⁣901)×5.85%\small \$600 + (\$35,\!000-\$13,\!901)\times 5.85 \% which equals $1,834. See the following table as a summary:

  1. We need to consider the local tax in the New York paycheck calculator 2022. Similarly to the last step, since we are in the $25,001 to $50,000 bracket, we must pay $858 plus 3.819% of the excess over $25,000 as taxes. That means we owe: $858+($43, ⁣000$25, ⁣000)×3.819%\small \$858 + (\$43,\!000-\$25,\!000)\times 3.819 \% which equals $1,545.

  2. Finally, we subtract all the taxes: $43, ⁣000 ⁣ ⁣$3, ⁣401 ⁣ ⁣$1, ⁣834 ⁣ ⁣$1,545 ⁣ ⁣$3, ⁣290\small \$43,\!000\! -\! \$3,\!401\! -\! \$1,\!834\! -\! \$1,545\! -\! \$3,\!290. The take-home pay amount is $32,931, as you can see in the New York City income tax calculator.

In addition, you can estimate your take-home pay for a selected pay frequency – using our tool as a New York paycheck calculator. For example, if you want to see your monthly take-home pay, you need to select monthly pay frequency, resulting in an estimated monthly take-home pay of $2,744.23.

How to calculate New York income tax for a married couple

You can use this Omni Calculator tool New York city income tax calculator or do as follows:

  1. Suppose you are married, filing jointly, and making the median income in New York state: $75,000 annually. Subtract 7.65% of the adjusted gross income (AGI). That will go to your FICA: $5,738.
  2. Find your marginal tax rate. After deductions ($25,900), we have a marginal tax rate of 12% on $75, ⁣000$25, ⁣900=$49, ⁣100\small \$75,\!000 - \$25,\!900 = \$49,\!100, but remember, the marginal tax rate is only the last bracket we fit in. In this case, you will be taxed progressively: 10% up to $20,550, equivalent to $2,055, and the rest at 12%. Thus, we must pay $2,055 plus 12% of the amount over $20,550 (the last bracket), or $5,481 in total. Such value represents an effective tax rate of 11.16%.
  3. Obtain the New York paycheck tax: Because of your AGI, your standard deduction is $16,050. Hence, your taxable income becomes $58,950. The state income tax is $1,202 plus 5.85% of the amount over $27,900, which equals $3,018.
  4. To get the state tax, we verify we fit in the $45,001 to $90,000 bracket. That means we pay $1,545 plus 3.819% of the amount over $45,000, or $2,691 in total.
  5. Finally, subtract all the taxes stated above from your AGI to get your take-home pay. By doing that, we obtain an income after tax of $58,072. You can verify the results in the awesome New York state tax calculator.

Finally, if you are considering moving to Alabama, Texas, Illinois, or California, we recommend checking their respective tax calculators:
