50-State Guide to Business Income Tax

Information on small business income tax in every state.

Most states tax at least some types of business income derived from the state. In most states,  corporations are subject to a corporate income tax while income from “pass-through entities” -- such as S corporations, limited liability companies (LLCs), partnerships, and sole proprietorships -- is subject to a state’s tax on personal income. Tax rates for both corporate income and personal income vary widely among states. Corporate rates, which often are flat regardless of the amount of income, generally range from 4% to 9%, and personal rates, which often vary depending on the amount of income, can range from 0% to 9% or more in some states.
