Michigan Tax Rate

 

While federal tax rates apply to every taxpayer depending on their filing status, state income taxes vary by state. Some states have a flat tax rate, marginal tax rate, or don’t have any state taxes at all.

State tax is levied by Michigan on your income while living in or working within the state each year. State income taxes, which vary by state, are a percentage of money that you pay to the state government based on the income you earn.
