Looking to cut down on tax preparation time? You can file your DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA income taxes and federal taxes at the same time using ExpressTaxRefund.comExpressTaxRefund.com simplifies the tax preparation process by automatically filling in any matching information into both your state and federal tax forms.

The District of Columbia, while not a state, still taxes residents’ incomes individually using a combination of filing systems available to states for taxation. Registered domestic partners and married couples are subject to the same rules and regulations in regard to filing individual state taxes in the District of Columbia. Taxpayers can opt to file a joint return and combine their incomes into a single return, or they can keep everything separate with their incomes taxed individually. The latter may result in lower rates of taxation, where the former may offer different tax breaks.

Even though D.C. uses the federal AGI as the starting point for taxing income, there are some differences that must be acknowledged when filing the state return.


Some income doesn’t have to be included in your total adjusted gross income, including:

  • Interest from U.S. Government Bonds
  • Up to $3,000 in public, civil service, or military pension for taxpayers age 62 or older
  • Social Security benefits
  • State/municipal bond interest
  • Up to $5,200 in disability income
  • Unearned income from a dependent that in included in parent’s AGI
  • Unlawful employment discrimination compensation
  • D.C. and federal government survivor benefits
  • Loan assistance for poverty lawyers
  • Up to $10,000 for disabled residents with an AGI under $100,000


At the state level, similar to the federal government, taxpayers can take deductions in order to reduce their taxes. Taxpayers who file single, married, filing jointly, or Head of Household can take a standard deduction of $4,100, while married couples who file single can get $2,050.

Local and state income taxes, along with sales tax are not deductible. Deductions are subject to income limitations, with the only exceptions being medical, dental, investment interest expenses and casualty or theft losses. There are limited deductions available for higher education savings, long-term care premiums, D.C. teacher’s material costs, and loan repayment awards for health care professionals.
