How Your Vermont Paycheck Works

Situated in the northern part of New England, Vermont boasts a lot of charm and appeal. With its beautiful scenery, friendly people, and relaxed lifestyle, Vermont is a place where you can enjoy the changing seasons, the fresh air, and the local food. Whether you pursue your passions, your dreams, or your goals in Vermont, you should know how your paycheck works. Let's go over what factors influence your take-home pay, so you can make the most of your time and resources in the Green Mountain State.

One of the main items withheld from your gross pay is federal income tax, which depends on your filing status, income level, and the information you provide on Form W-4. This is the federal Employee’s Withholding Certificate that instructs your employer how much to withhold from your pay based on various factors.

The federal income tax system is progressive, which means that the more you earn, the higher your tax rate. As far as wages go, this is designed to ensure that everyone pays their fair share of taxes according to how much they earn. Federal income tax helps fund various government programs and services that benefit the nation as a whole.

Another type of federal tax you’ll see is FICA taxes, which consists of Social Security tax and Medicare tax. These help fund the retirement and health care programs that millions of Americans rely on, especially those who are older or have disabilities.

FICA taxes are the same for everyone who works and don't vary based on filing status. You pay 6.2% of your wages for Social Security up to a maximum applicable income of $147,000 in 2022, and 1.45% of your wages for Medicare with no limit. Your employer will match what you pay and contribute as well. If you earn more than a certain limit, you also pay a little extra in the form of a 0.9% Medicare surtax.

After federal taxes, your paycheck will also have state income tax withheld from it. The amount depends on your filing status, income level, and the information you provide on Form W-4VT. This is the Vermont Employee’s Withholding Allowance Certificate that instructs your employer how much to withhold from your pay.

The state income tax system in Vermont is also progressive and has four different tax brackets that range from 3.35% to 8.75%. Each bracket applies to different levels of your income. The revenue collected from this helps fund various state programs and services that benefit the residents of Vermont, such as education, health care, public safety, transportation, and environmental protection.

Fortunately, there are no local income taxes whether that be in the lively capital of Montpelier, the scenic village of Stowe, or anywhere in between.

Besides your regular pay, your employer may also offer you a range of benefits that can make a big difference in your finances and your well-being. Benefits are extra rewards that your employer helps offer you on top of your regular pay. These benefits include things like health insurance, retirement plans, life insurance, disability insurance, commuter plans, flexible spending accounts (FSA), health savings accounts (HSA), and more.

Typically, these don't come free, but the good thing is that some of these benefits can also lower your taxes. How? By using pre-tax dollars from your paycheck to pay for them. This means they lower your taxable income.

Other benefits may instead use post-tax dollars from your paycheck. These wouldn't affect your taxes but may still offer value.
