Montana Income Tax Brackets
Montana’s income tax brackets remain the same regardless of the tax filing status. For Single Filers, Married Filing Separately, Married Filing Jointly, and Heads of Household, the tax rates look like this:
|Taxable Income||Tax Percentage|
Montana Taxable Income
When it comes to taxable income, Montana handles it differently than the federal government. For example, security income, federal bond interest, unemployment compensation and military earnings are not taxable forms of income but they are on a federal return.
To counteract the state income tax, Montana offers its residents many a great number of deductions, including a few not applicable on a federal return. A deduction for federal income tax payments, for instances, is deductible up to $1,940 for single filers and those married filing separately. A married couple filing a joint return can deduct up to $3,880.
If you do not itemize deductions, you can claim the standard deduction, which is equal to 20 percent of your adjusted gross income (AGI). However, there is a minimum and maximum amount you can claim as a standard deduction. For married couples filing jointly, the minimum is $4,000. Single filers or those married filing separately can deduct a minimum standard deduction of $2,000.
The maximum standard deductions for individuals married filing jointly or head of household is $9,020. Single filers or those married filing separately are limited to a maximum of $4,510.
Personal exemptions up to $2,400 are also available for both the tax filer and their dependents.
