Which States Have No Income Tax?

 

For taxpayers in the majority of the states in the U.S., tax time means filing a return for federal and state taxes. However, that’s not the case for everyone across the country. If you’re a taxpayer in one of the nine states without an individual income tax, you are not required to prepare and file a state return.

The following states don’t have income tax:

  • Alaska
  • Florida
  • Nevada
  • South Dakota
  • Texas
  • Washington
  • Wyoming

Additionally, these states don’t have income taxes for earned income, but they do tax dividend and interest income:

  • New Hampshire
  • Tennessee

States Without Income Taxes – Additional Considerations

If you live in a state without individual income taxes, you won’t need to pay taxes on your wages or income from Social Security, pensions, or retirement plans, such as 401(k)s or an IRA. However, taxpayers in these states are still subject to other types of taxes, including local taxes or sales taxes.
