Income Tax


Flat Tax by Country Flat Tax by State
Individual Income Tax Corporate Income Tax


43  states levy individual income taxes:

  • 41 tax wage and salary income, while 2 states (New Hampshire and Tennessee) exclusively tax dividend and investment income.
  • 7 states levy no individual income tax at all, while 6 states levy no corporate income tax at all.
  • Texas has no individual income tax or corporate income tax

Example: Alaska has no sales, property or income tax and is considering comprehensive tax reform to offset the low oil prices. It is worth analyzing whether Texas will need to implement a state income tax to offset current or future low oil prices.
