How Your North Dakota Paycheck Works

Nestled in the heart of the Great Plains, North Dakota is a state brimming with natural beauty and rich cultural heritage. From the rolling hills and shimmering lakes to the bustling cities and friendly communities, there's no shortage of things to love about this Midwestern gem.

Beyond the picturesque landscapes and warm hospitality of the Peace Garden State are many hard workers earning a paycheck. While it may not be as exciting as hiking in Theodore Roosevelt National Park, understanding how your paycheck works can be helpful in navigating your financial environment.

When you start a new job, one of the first things you will do is fill out a federal Form W-4, which tells your employer how much federal income tax to withhold from your pay. This depends on your income, filing status, dependents and other factors.

State income tax in North Dakota is calculated based on your taxable income and the state’s tax brackets and rates. The system is progressive and has five tax brackets where each bracket applies to a different level of income with higher levels seeing higher rates. The range, which spans from 1.10% to 2.90%, is actually among the lowest in the nation, as far as states with progressive rates go. Additionally, there are also no cities or counties here that impose a local income tax.

In North Dakota, there is no state equivalent to the W-4 form and your employer will also use that to figure out how much state income tax to withhold.

Besides the federal and state income taxes, you will also have some other taxes withheld from your pay like Social Security tax and Medicare tax, which are also known as FICA taxes. These are payroll taxes that fund the Social Security and Medicare programs that provide benefits for many across America.

Both you and your employer pay FICA taxes at a rate of 7.65% of your gross income. The Social Security tax rate is 6.2% up to a wage limit of $147,000 for 2022, and the Medicare tax rate is 1.45% with no wage limit. There is also an additional Medicare tax of 0.9% for high-income earners.

Depending on your situation, you may have other amounts subtracted from your paycheck. Typically your employer will offer some kind of benefit package as part of your job. Some of these benefits may be voluntary or mandatory, and may be pre-tax or post-tax. Common pre-tax examples include health insurance premiums and 401(k) retirement contributions. Since these are taken from your pay before taxes, they happen to lower your taxable income, which then lowers your tax. You should check with your employer or payroll provider to understand what items apply to you and how they affect your net pay.

If you are a resident of Minnesota or Montana and work in North Dakota, you may not have to pay state income tax on your wages. This is because North Dakota has income tax reciprocity agreements with these two neighboring states. These agreements allow workers to pay income tax only to their home state, and avoid double taxation.

To take advantage of this benefit, you just need to submit exemption Form NDW-R to your employer. This form certifies that you are exempt from North Dakota income tax withholding on your wages.
