Almost everyone knows the basics of federal income tax returns like when they’re due, filing extensions, etc.
When it comes to state income taxes, however, there’s more confusion since there isn’t a centralized location for the above.
Questions arise such as:
- What are this state’s income tax rates?
- Where is my state refund?
- Do I have to pay state income tax if I’m not a resident?
The problem here is that each state has it’s own rules regarding state income taxes, if it even has an income tax.
What are you supposed to do?
Come here and use this handy list to go right to the state you’re interested in.
