You can be compassionate all you want, but you cannot argue with math. Numbers don't care - for you, for me, for the children, or anything else. They simply are, and in this case, they do not add up to a self-sustaining equation.
Personal income tax
California collects income tax from its residents at the following rates.
For single and married filing separately taxpayers:
1% on the first $7,850 of taxable income.
2% on taxable income between $7,851 and $18,610.
4% on taxable income between $18,611 and $29,372.
6% on taxable income between $29,373 and $40,773.
8% on taxable income between $40,774 and $51,530.
9.3% on taxable income between $51,531 and $263,222.
10.3% on taxable income between $263,223 and 315,866.
11.3% on taxable income between $315,867 and $526,443.
12.3% on taxable income of $526,444 and above.
A 1% surcharge, the mental health services tax, is collected on taxable incomes of $1 million or more, making California's highest marginal rate 13.3%.
For married people filing joint returns and heads of households, the rates remain the same, but the income brackets are doubled.
Residents must complete returns on Form 540 2EZ or Form 540. Nonresidents or part-year residents should file 540NR Short Form or 540NR Long Form. The deadline for all forms is April 15. When that date falls on a weekend or holiday, filers get until the next business day to submit their state returns.
You might be able to file your California return electronically at no cost using CalFile if you meet the program's eligibility requirements.
California's previous free filing option, Ready Return, has been rolled into CalFile.
