Indiana Individual Income Tax Provisions

There are three systems which states can use to assess taxes to their residents: joint, combined, or a combination of the two. Indiana opts to use the joint system, which is the popular choice among many of the states. It combines the incomes of both partners in a married couple and taxes it as a single amount.

In determining a tax base, the state starts with the federal AGI and makes adjustments regarding what sources of incomes are taxable at the state level. There are some notable differences from the federal law which residents of Indiana need to be aware of.

Exemptions

While Indiana follows the federal tax base fairly closely, the following sources of income are exempt:

  • Social security benefits
  • State/municipal bond interest
  • Up to $2,000 of U.S. civil service pensions (62 & over)
  • Up to $5,000 of military pension dividends (60 & over)
  • Social Security benefits
  • State/municipal bond interest

There is a limited exemption for Indiana lottery winnings. In Indiana, several sources of income are included that are generally deducted federally, such as lump sum distributions, domestic production activities, and bonus depreciation.

Deductions

Indiana does not have a state level standard deduction, nor does the state accept itemized deductions. However, deductions do exist for certain circumstances, including:

  • rent and property taxes paid on principal residence
  • non-Indiana locality earnings
  • certain income of enterprise/airport development zone employees
  • income of persons receiving Medicaid in a care facility
  • law enforcement awards
  • Indiana Partnership long-term care insurance premiums
  • qualified patents income
  • solar-powered roof vent or fan expenses
  • private school and homeschool expenses
  • employer contributions to and interest on certain medical savings accounts not excluded for federal purposes.

* 91 of Indiana's 92 counties levy their own income taxes in addition to the state, with rates ranging from 0.1% up to 3.13%.
