Alabama State Income Tax Brackets
Understanding your state income tax can be a challenge depending on the complexity of your tax situation. Taxpayers in Alabama have to follow a progressive model when it comes to paying their taxes. How tax brackets work is that low-income earners are subject to a much smaller state income tax rate than individuals with higher incomes. For single tax filers and married couples filing jointly, the tax brackets look like this. You can see the federal tax brackets here.
|Tax Rate||Single||Married filing jointly|
|4%||Between $501 and $3000||Between $1001 and $6000|
|5%||Above $3000||Above $6000|
