New Hampshire Individual Income Tax Provisions

The state of New Hampshire uses a joint filing system to assess income tax to residents. This is the most commonly used system, as it follows the federal government's version and institutes the notion that a family is considered a single economic unit. In a joint filing system, both parties of a married couple add their income together so it can be taxed as a single amount.

In New Hampshire, same-sex marriages are legally recognized, so these couples are taxed the same as opposite-sex married couples. Also, the state's tax based is focused on interest and dividends, which provides major differences from the federal tax law.


Several sources of income are exemption from being taxed at the state level, including:

  • Capital gains and losses
  • Pension and retirement income from private, public, civil service, and military accounts
  • Active duty military pay
  • Unemployment compensation
  • Social security benefits
  • Disability income
  • Lottery winnings
  • Interest from U.S. Government bonds
  • Earnings on IRAS, Keogh plans, tax-deferred investments and federally exempt retirement plans
  • Earnings on college tuition savings plans

Interest and dividends from annuities, financial institutions, bonds, notes, private loans and mortgages, corporations, mutual funds, cash or distributions from a taxable partnership, S-corporation, trust, or association are all taxable.

New Hampshire doesn't have any state-level deductions, since the tax base centers around interest and dividends. works with the IRS and state revenue services to bring you the latest tax laws, forms & schedules.
