How Your Idaho Paycheck Works

Idaho is a gem in more ways than one. Not only is it known as the Gem State for its rich mineral deposits and stunning landscapes, but it also offers a variety of attractions and opportunities for people from all walks of life. Whether you are attracted to Idaho by its world-class skiing, its vibrant arts and culture scene, or its low crime rate and high quality of life, you will find something to suit your taste and budget in this state. Speaking of budget, you should also familiarize yourself with how the state’s tax system works and how it affects your finances.

One of the main factors that affect your Idaho paycheck is the state income tax. Idaho has a progressive tax system, which means that the more money you make, the higher percentage of your income you have to pay in taxes. There are a total of four different tax brackets, ranging from 1% to 6%. Your tax bracket depends not only on your taxable income (gross income minus deductions), but also on your filing status (single, married filing jointly, etc.).

In order for your employer to calculate your state income tax withholding, you need to fill out Form ID W-4, which is similar to the federal Form W-4. On this form, you can specify things like your marital status and more. You can also choose to have an additional amount withheld if you expect to owe more tax at the end of the year. It's a good idea to update this form whenever your personal situation changes so that your tax withholdings stay accurate.

Another significant item taken from your paycheck is the federal income tax. As the name suggests, this is a tax that you pay to the federal government. The federal system has seven tax brackets. Just like with state tax, the more you earn, the higher your tax rate will be. However, you don’t pay the same rate on your entire income. Instead, you pay a lower rate on the first portion of your income and a higher rate on the next portion, and so on.

Another tax that will be withheld from your paycheck is FICA (Federal Insurance Contributions Act) tax, which consists of Social Security and Medicare taxes. Social Security tax is 6.2% of your wages up to a certain limit ($147,000 in 2022), and Medicare tax is 1.45% of your wages with no limit. High income earners will also pay an additional 0.9% Medicare surtax. Your employer will match your amounts (except the Medicare surtax) and pay as well.

Some other states may have local income taxes from cities or counties, but fortunately, Idaho is not one of those states. There are no local income taxes to worry about here.

Besides the above taxes that are withheld from your Idaho paycheck, you may also have some voluntary contributions that affect your take home pay. These are withholdings that you choose to make from your income for various purposes, such as saving for retirement, paying for health insurance, or donating to charity.

By making voluntary contributions, you can plan for your future needs and goals, as well as support causes that you care about.

Depending on the type of contribution, it may be pre-tax or post-tax.

Pre-tax contributions are items that are made from your gross income before taxes are calculated. This means that they lower your taxable income and reduce your tax liability.

Conversely, post-tax contributions are items that are made from your net income after taxes are calculated. This means that they do not affect your taxable income or tax liability.
