Taxpayers must pay personal income tax to the federal government, 43 states, and many local municipalities. Learn how to pay your state taxes and find out about resources in your area that can help you through the process.
The amount of state and local income tax you pay will depend on how much income you earn and the tax rate of the state or locality where you live. To find out how much you owe and how to pay it, find personal income tax information by state.
Your state taxpayer advocate can offer protection during the assessment and collection of taxes. This protection extends to your rights, privacy, and property. Contact your state’s department of revenue to find out your rights and whether you have a taxpayer advocate or ombudsman.
