Arizona Individual Income Tax Provisions

When it comes to individual state income tax, each state that assesses tax on their residents can adopt their own system. States can use either a joint system, a combined system, or a combination of the two in order to determine income amounts to be taxed. Arizona falls under the first system, a joint filing system where the incomes of both spouses are joined together and taxed as a single amount. Arizona joins 34 other states who use this system to tax their residents.

The base for taxation in Arizona starts with federal adjusted gross income. However there are some difference between what income is taxed at the state level versus the federal level.

Exemptions

Some types of income are exempt from inclusion in the tax base as follows:

  • Interest from U.S. Government bonds
  • Retirement income from public, civil service, and military duty is exempt up to $2,500
  • Social Security benefits
  • Income from Active Duty Military service including Reserves and National Guard members

There are a few differences from the federal law, though most of Arizona income follows a very similar structure. Two major differences are that up to $5,000 in Arizona lottery winnings are excluded from the tax base, and long term gains acquired after 12/31/11 are subject to a 10% exclusion.

Deductions

The standard deduction for Arizona is based on filing status. Those who file Single/Married filing Single can take a standard deduction of $4,945 while Married, filing Jointly or Head of Household is entitled to $9,883.

The major differences between federal deductions and Arizona State are:

  • Medical expenses aren't reduced based on AGI
  • Contributions claimed for charity credit cannot be deducted
  • Gambling losses must be adjusted to reflect the exclusion for lottery winnings.
