How Your New York Paycheck Works

In the heart of the East Coast lies the state of New York. With its breathtaking natural beauty and rich history, it is one of the most iconic and diverse regions in the United States. From the bustling metropolis of The Big Apple to the serene landscapes of the Adirondacks, the Empire State has much to offer for everyone with its diverse range of attractions and boundless opportunity.

New York is also a thriving economic center with an impressive range of industries, ranging from finance all the way to agriculture. Whether you're a seasoned professional or just starting out, it's good to have an understanding of how your paycheck works here.

Your employer will withhold taxes from your paycheck based on your income, filing status, and other factors. These taxes include federal income tax, state income tax, and local income tax if applicable. You'll also have to pay Social Security and Medicare taxes, which are federal payroll taxes that fund these programs.

What's unique with the tax situation in New York is that it has one of the highest state income tax rates in the country, especially for high-income earners who face a top marginal rate of 10.9%. It also has a couple localities that impose their own income taxes on top of the state taxes, making it even more expensive for some residents.

The first major item taken from your gross pay is federal income tax. The amount for this that is withheld from your paycheck depends on several factors such as your income level, filing status, exemptions, deductions (expenses that reduce your taxable income) and tax credits (amounts that reduce your tax liability). You can adjust these factors by filling out Form W-4, which tells your employer how much federal income tax to withhold from each paycheck. Additionally, you should update Form W-4 whenever there is a change in your personal or financial situation that affects your tax liability.

The other major item is state income tax which is a progressive tax that ranges from 4% to 10.9% depending on your taxable income and filing status. New York has nine different tax brackets. Your employer will use Form IT-2104 that you fill out when you start your job to determine how much state income tax to withhold from your paycheck.

Local income tax is an additional tax that some places in New York impose on their residents. For example, New York City, one of the largest and most prominent cities in the United States, has a city income tax that ranges from 3.078% to 3.876% depending on your taxable income and filing status. The city of Yonkers is another place that also has a city income tax.

Social Security and Medicare, also called FICA (Federal Insurance Contributions Act) taxes, are flat taxes that apply to all employees regardless of their income level. Social Security tax is 6.2% of your gross wages up to a limit of $147,000 for 2022. Medicare tax is 1.45% of your gross wages with no limit. If you earn more than certain thresholds, you will also have to pay an additional Medicare surtax of 0.9% on the excess amount. Your employer will match these taxes by paying the same amount as you do.

One notable tax form that is specific to New York is Form IT-201, which is the resident income tax return that you have to file by April 15th every year (unless it falls on a weekend or holiday or you request an extension). Non-residents would instead fill out Form IT-203. These forms allow you to report your income from all sources, claim deductions and credits, calculate your state and local taxes owed or refunded, and pay any balance due or request a refund.

Other items that reduce your gross pay may vary depending on your employer's policies and the benefits you choose to participate in. Some common examples are health insurance premiums, retirement plan contributions (such as 401(k), IRA, or Roth IRA), flexible spending accounts (such as FSA or HSA), life insurance premiums, disability insurance premiums, union dues, charitable donations, garnishments, and child support payments.

To calculate how much money you'll receive in each paycheck, you need to know how often you get paid and how much money you earn per pay period. Then, your net pay is just your gross pay minus all taxes and any other contributions you're making.
