Why was my girlfriends State Tax Income Higher than mine? ?

We both made the same amount $23k each and my state tax income was $350 and hers was $950, any reason why? Both of our taxes were almost the exact same besides job title.

Update:

The number would be How much State Return we’re getting back each

    She had more withheld from her paycheck most likely.

    The only real way to tell is to get out both returns, and compare them line-by-line.

    We would have to see the returns to tell you.

    Possibilities:

    1) She had different deductions... 401k, Healthcare Flexible Savings Account, other pre-tax items which reduced her taxable income;

    2) Her W2 withholding was different than yours.

    There may be other reasons - we'd need to see the paperwork...

    If your taxable income is the same and your filing status is the same (single) then your tax liability will be the same.  The "tax due" or "tax refund" may be different due to difference in tax payments (withholding). 

    There are other possibilities, such as a difference in credits.  But the question to you is, what si the $350 and the $950?  Tax due?  Tax refund?
