Utah Individual Income Tax Provisions

Taxpayers in the state of Utah are required to file a state income tax return. Utah uses a joint filing system, which combines the incomes of both spouses in a married couple and taxes it as a single amount. This aligns with the federal theory that a family is a single economic unit.

Utah uses the taxpayer's federal adjusted gross income as a starting point for the tax base. However, there are a few differences between the state law and the federal law that taxpayer's should be aware of when filing their state return, as some income is exempt from inclusion in the tax base.

Exemptions

Utah follows the federal law rather closely, however there are a few exemptions worth noting as far as what income is included in the tax base:

  • Interest from U.S. government bonds
  • Reservation income earned by a member of a Native American tribe
  • Utah obligations on state/municipal bond interest
  • Interest on non-Utah municipal bonds from states that exempt interest from Utah.

Deductions

Utah uses the same guidelines for the standard deduction as the federal provision. Additionally, credits are given for gains reinvested into certain state small businesses, as well as any gains from the sale or exchange of gold or silver coins. Federal, state, and local income taxes are not deductible.
