Iowa Individual Income Tax Provisions

States are allowed to tax their residents and create their own state tax system. Iowa has a tax system that includes Joint, Combined and Same-Sex Marriage provisions. Iowa joins six other states in using a Joint/Combined taxation system. In this system, residents can either be taxed by calculating both spouses' incomes together as a single economic unit through the combined system, where each spouse is taxed separately.

Iowa bases its state taxes off of the states adjusted gross income. Below are some differences between exemptions for federal and state taxes.

Exemptions

  • Interest and Dividends from U.S. Government Bonds
  • Pension/Retirement Income up to $6,000 or $12,000 for Married or Joint for Private, Public, U.S. Civil Service and Military if you are over 55 or disabled.
  • Active Military Duty; plus taxes are forgiven if killed in the line of duty.

Deductions

Iowa bases it standard deduction off of filing status. Single or Married filing Single $1,900 or Married filing jointly or Head of Household $4,670.

The big differences between Iowa state deductions and federal deductions are:

  • Federal Income Taxes are deductible
  • Alcohol Fuel Credits
  • Alternative Motor Vehicles
  • Health and Dental Insurance Premiums

Same sex couples who are married are treated in the same manner for income tax and may file either joint or separate returns.
