See What a $100K Salary Looks Like After Taxes in Your State

As we head into year three of the coronavirus pandemic, many Americans are still experiencing financial hardship — and most have insufficient emergency funds. According to CNBC, 56% of Americans could not come up with $1,000 for an emergency if they had to, and to make matters worse, inflation rose to nearly 7% by the end of 2021, making many common goods and services harder on the wallet, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. At times like these, it’s more important than ever to focus on just how much income you take home from your paycheck so you can budget appropriately going forward.

To that end, GOBankingRates analyzed the tax burden on a hypothetical $100,000 salary to find how much take-home pay varied by state. Data was analyzed for both single and married filers. Seven states have a tax burden as low as 16.13% for married filers: Alaska, Florida, Nevada, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Washington and Wyoming. The tax burden is highest for single filers in Oregon, coming in at 30.96% for single filers earning $100,000.

One good way to use this data during the current financial crisis is to divide your anticipated take-home pay into a usable budget. Most advisers suggest some variation of a 50/30/20 budget, in which 50% of your income goes to necessities, 30% is for discretionary items and 20% is for savings. In uncertain economic times, you can try to whittle down the 30% category and shift more toward your savings. You may also be able to negotiate the payments on some of your bills in the “necessity” category as well. For example, some credit card issuers may be willing to allow you to defer payments or interest for a month or more during the current crisis.

Your Money: Stay on Track With the Financial Stability Roadmap

More than anything, times of economic stress further emphasize the ongoing need for an emergency fund. As your finances begin to improve, try to tuck away more money than you’re used to for savings. In the meantime, divert any extra income you may have toward your emergency fund. Focus on your take-home pay when figuring out your budget throughout the current crisis and beyond.

More From GOBankingRates

Methodology: In order to find what a $100k salary really looks like in every state, GOBankingRates sourced both the federal and state tax brackets from the Tax Foundation’s 2022 data. GOBankingRates used an in-house income tax calculator to find both the effective and marginal tax rate on income of $100,000 in every state. GOBankingRates also found the Federal Insurance Contributions Act tax with its rate sourced from the Social Security Administration. These calculations were done for a person filing their taxes as a single person and for a married couple filing jointly. GOBankingRates found the total income taxes paid, total tax burden, total take-home pay, total gross bi-weekly paycheck, the after income tax bi-weekly paycheck for each state, and the total amount taken out of each bi-weekly paycheck due to taxes. All data was collected on and up to date as of January 25, 2022.
