How Your Arizona Paycheck Works

Arizona, also known as the Grand Canyon State, is a diverse and dynamic state with a lot to offer. Whether you are a native Arizonan or a newcomer, you may be interested in how your paycheck works in this state. How much money do you actually take home after taxes? Let's dive on in.

When you start a new job, one of the first things you need to do is fill out a federal Form W-4, which tells your employer how much federal income tax to withhold from your pay. The amount of federal tax depends on your income, filing status, and other factors. Make sure to keep this form updated whenever things change.

Another important form you need to fill out is an Arizona Form A-4, which tells your employer how much state income tax to withhold from your pay. This is the state equivalent to the federal W-4.

Arizona has a progressive income tax system with two different tax brackets. Rates vary from 2.55% to 2.98% depending on your taxable income and filing status.

That being said, some lucky workers in Arizona don’t even have to worry about state taxes being taken out of their paychecks. Are you one of them? You might be if you work in certain industries or have a special situation.

For example, if you are a movie production crew member or a seasonal farm worker, you could be exempt from withholding. Another case where you might not have to pay state taxes is if your spouse is a military member stationed in Arizona and you moved here to be with them. But you have to show that Arizona is not your permanent home and that you and your spouse still have ties to another state.

Speaking of other states, some may have local city payroll taxes, but fortunately, Arizona is not one of them. So you do not have to worry about any additional taxes being withheld from your paycheck by your city or county. If you're moving in from out of state, that's one less thing to have to factor in when deciding on where you want to live.

In addition to federal and state income taxes, you will also have to pay FICA taxes, which are federal taxes that fund Social Security and Medicare. These taxes are 6.2% for Social Security and 1.45% for Medicare, for a total of 7.65% of your gross pay. Your employer will match these amounts and pay them on your behalf.

Note that Social Security tax is only applied on up to $147,000 of your wages in 2022. Also, if you have a top tier salary, you'll also see a 0.9% extra Medicare surtax as well.

You may also have some pre-tax items taken from your pay, such as medical insurance, dental coverage, vision insurance, 401(k) contributions, long term disability insurance, group-term life insurance, commuter plan, FSA, or HSA.

These can reduce your taxable income and lower your tax bill. Depending on what's available, you should be able to specify and adjust these through your employer’s benefits program.

You might also have some post-tax items applied to your pay, such as union dues, charitable donations, or other voluntary or involuntary payments. These would not affect your taxable income but instead just reduce your net pay.

After subtracting all the taxes and withholdings from your gross pay, you'll get your net pay or take home pay. This is the amount of money that you actually receive in your bank account or paycheck. You can then use this amount to budget for your expenses and savings goals.
