    State income tax is an income tax in the United States that is levied by each individual state. Some states choose to impose no income tax. These states are Alaska, Florida, Nevada, South Dakota, Texas, Washington, and Wyoming. Additionally, New Hampshire and Tennessee limit their state income taxes to dividends and interest income only. As of 2007, the highest rate of state income tax is that of Vermont, with a maximum rate of 9.5%. Of those states which impose an income tax, the lowest maximum rate is that of Illinois, which levies a flat tax of 3%.

    Tax paid to individual state according to wages earned. Refund from state would be how much you overpaid.
