Iowa State Tax Brackets

The state of Iowa collects income tax from its residents at the same rate regardless of filing status. Here’s a breakdown of those rates:

Iowa School District Surtax

As a resident of Iowa, the school district surtax is another detail to understand when it comes to state income taxes. The surtax generates revenue that goes directly to the school district the taxpayer resides in. The amount paid is based on the taxpayer’s total individual state income tax. That amount is multiplied by the district’s surtax rate to calculate the amount owed. Each district’s rate varies, but all are within 0 to 20 percent.

Example: If a taxpayer’s total state income taxes are $1,000, and he or she lives in a school district with a 10 percent surtax, the school district surtax is $100.

Iowa Standard Tax Deductions

Iowa residents filing single or married filing separately can claim a standard deduction of $2,000. Those who are married filing jointly or head of household can claim a standard deduction of $4,920.
