New York State has two types of income taxes- a personal income tax and a corporate income tax. These taxes are calculated on the taxable income of individuals, estates, trusts and corporations.

The personal income tax rate is graduated, which means that higher incomes will pay more taxes than lower ones. There are seven brackets ranging from 0% to nearly 11%.

The corporate income tax rate is a flat rate of four percent on net profits. This is one of the lowest corporate tax rates in the country.The total amount of state taxes collected from New York residents each year is approximately $30 billion dollars. This includes about $15 billion dollars in property taxes that are collected by the state government, as well as more than $12 billion dollars from sales and use taxes.

Income tax is calculated on a taxpayer's gross income minus deductions for certain expenses such as medical care or childcare costs. The result of this calculation determines your bracket rate, which will determine how much tax you will owe from year one through five years of employment.

The State of New York's corporate income tax rate is fixed at a flat rate of just over nine percent with no deductions or credits. This means that all corporations, regardless of size or location within the state, will pay this same rate when filing their taxes for a given year.

For example:If you live in New York City and earn $100,000 per year but have no other income sources outside of your employer's salary (such as investment dividends from stocks or property taxes on real estate), you will pay $900 in state corporate income tax.

If you live outside of New York City and earn $100,000 per year but have no other income sources outside of your employer's salary (such as investment dividends from stocks or property taxes on real estate), then there would be no tax due to New York State.


The personal income tax rate is also graduated in New York, meaning that higher incomes will pay more taxes than lower ones.

The state offers a host of credits and exemptions for taxpayers who qualify. These can include deductions for property taxes paid on your primary residence or contributions to charitable organizations.


The personal income tax is levied on individual taxpayers and is based on total taxable income.

The corporate income tax is levied on businesses and it is based on net taxable income. The rate for corporations in New York State is a flat four percent. This means that all businesses within the state will pay the same amount when filing their taxes, regardless of size or location.The personal income tax is collected at the state level through withholding from paychecks or estimated quarterly payments by taxpayers who are self-employed or have other forms of nonwage income such as investment gains or business profits. It also includes Social Security benefits that exceed certain thresholds.


The corporate income tax applies to businesses that are organized as corporations and is based on net income.

The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance is responsible for the collection and administration of all state taxes. In addition to income, sales and property taxes, they also collect estate and gift taxes, as well as tobacco products tax.Taxpayers have the option of filing their state taxes electronically or on paper.
