How Your Florida Paycheck Works
Welcome to the Sunshine State, where the crystal-clear waters, warm sandy beaches, and endless sunshine make it a paradise for residents and tourists alike. Whether you're strolling down the palm-lined streets of Miami, exploring the theme parks of Orlando, or relaxing on the Gulf Coast, there's no shortage of things to do and see in Florida.
But while you're enjoying all that the state has to offer, have you ever stopped to wonder how the paychecks work in this sunny corner of the country? From taxes to deductions, there are a few things to know about getting paid in Florida, so let's dive in and explore the ins and outs of how paychecks work here.
First and foremost, your employer will withhold various amounts from your paycheck, but one thing you won't see is state income tax. That's right, zero state tax on income.
Florida is one of the few states that offers this perk. This means that you will not see any state income tax subtracted from your paycheck, which can make a big difference in your take-home pay compared to other states. Additionally, no cities here charge a local income tax either, so you don’t have to worry about that too.
However, just because Florida does not have a state income tax does not mean that you will not pay any other taxes on your paycheck.
The federal government levies taxes on your income based on your filing status, income level, and applicable tax brackets. When you start a job, you have to fill out Form W-4, which tells your employer how much to withhold from your paycheck for federal income tax. If you ever have a change in your circumstances or want to adjust your withholding amount, you can re-submit a new Form W-4 anytime.
In addition to federal income tax, you will also pay Social Security and Medicare taxes on your earnings. These are together also known as FICA taxes and they fund the social programs that provide benefits for retirees, disabled people, and others. The current rates for these taxes are 6.2% for Social Security on wages up to $147,000 in 2022 and 1.45% for Medicare on all wages. If you have a high income over a certain threshold, you'll also see a 0.9% Medicare surtax as well. Note that your employer will match these contributions (except for the surtax) and make payments too.
You might also have other items taken out of your gross pay. Some of these may include pre-tax expenses or contributions like ones to retirement plans such as 401(k) or IRA accounts, health savings accounts (HSAs), flexible spending accounts (FSAs), health insurance premiums, etc. These contributions may lower your taxable income since they are subtracted from your pay before taxes and therefore can reduce your tax liability. If you have items taken out of your pay after taxes, those would instead be called post-tax items and they would not affect your taxes.
Florida's lack of state income tax makes it an attractive destination for many workers who want to keep more of their earnings. This is especially so for retirees.
That said, this also means that the state relies more heavily on other sources of revenue such as sales tax, property tax, etc. These taxes may affect your cost of living depending on where you live and what you buy in the state.
As for what the future holds, Florida has a constitutional amendment (passed in 2018) that requires a two-third vote of legislature to increase state taxes or fees. This makes it unlikely that Florida will introduce a state income tax anytime soon unless there is a major fiscal crisis or public demand.
