Washington DC Taxable vs. Non-taxable income

Individuals that resided in D.C. for part of the year can subtract any income they earned while living elsewhere from their taxable income to determine how much is taxed by the District. Along those same lines, all Social Security income is not considered taxable income within the parameters of D.C. Additionally, U.S. debt obligations and up to $4,000 (for Single filers) in contributions to D.C. College Savings Plans can also be subtracted to determine a taxpayer’s taxable income.

DC Standard Deduction & Personal Exemptions

Single individuals, dependents, and married or registered domestic partners filing separately can claim a standard deduction amount of $5,650. Head of household filers are allowed $7,800. Married or registered domestic partners filing jointly, qualifying widow(ers), and those married or registered domestic partners filing join returns can claim a standard deduction of $10,275.

If a taxpayer itemizes deductions on his or her federal return, they must itemize deductions excluding state and local taxes on their Washington DC state return. That amount is also subject to the DC five percent limitation.
