Of the three different systems states can use to tax residents on income, Hawaii choses a to use a joint system. This means that married couples must combine their incomes and have it taxed as a single amount. This system is very similar to the one used by the federal government in relation to joint filers. Same-sex married couples are recognized in Hawaii, along with couples in a civil union, and taxes these couples similarly to opposite-sex taxpayers.

The tax base for the state uses the federal system as a guideline, starting with federal adjusted gross income. Though the taxation system is relatively similar, there are some differences that taxpayers should be aware of.

Exemptions

Certain sources of income do not have to be calculated into your AGI when determining Hawaii state taxes, including:

  • U.S. Government bond interest
  • Public, civil service, and military pension (employer-funded private pension may also be exempt)
  • Social Security benefits
  • Active Duty Military income of up to $6,076 for National Guard and Reserve members along with CZE

The state includes some income, like student loan interest and employee-offered adoption benefits, in their taxed income. Usually, these sources of income are exempt from taxation at the federal level.

Deductions

The standard deduction can be taken by taxpayers when they file their state return, and is dependent on filing status. Hawaii offers a standard deduction of:

  • Single/Married filing Single: $2,200
  • Married filing jointly: $4,400
  • Head of Household: $3,212

Some deductions are limited by the taxpayer’s AGI. For example, state and local taxes are not eligible for deduction if taxpayers exceed the AGI threshold listed below:

  • Single/Married filing Single: $100,000 +
  • Head of Household: $150,000 +
  • Married filing Jointly: $200,000 +

Additional limitations apply for itemized deductions. Some deductions that exist at the federal level, such as education expenses, are taxed by the state.
