Hawaii Taxable Income and Deductions
One advantage of paying taxes in Hawaii is that several types of income the federal government deems taxable are not taxed by the state. For example, Social Security benefits should be subtracted from an individual’s income to calculate their total taxable income. Pension earnings are also not taxable in Hawaii.
A down payment on a first home can be subtracted up to $5,000 a year for a total of $25,000. Interest from federal obligations and benefits of or premiums paid to legal service plans can also be subtracted to determine a taxpayer’s adjusted gross income in Hawaii.
Taxpayers of Hawaii can also claim itemized deductions on their state tax returns. However, in order to do so, their total sum has to be more than the standard deduction for their filing status. The standard deduction for single filers and those married filing separately is $2,200. Individuals filing as head of household can claim a standard deduction of $3,212, and for people filing married filing jointly it’s $4,400.
