States, such as Rhode Island, that charge income tax on their residents have a trio of options when determining which system to use to assess those taxes. From joint, combined, and a mix of the two systems, Rhode Island opts to use the joint system, which follows the federal government’s idea that a family is a single economic unit. In these cases, married couples combine their income and have it taxed as a single amount. Same-sex marriage is recognized in Rhode Island, meaning these couples are taxed the same as opposite-sex couples.

Rhode Island’s tax base uses the taxpayer’s federal adjusted gross income. While the state mostly mimics the federal tax laws, there are some differences that are important to note, especially with exemptions and deductions.


Interest from Rhode Island State and Municipal Bonds and interest and dividends on U.S. Government Bonds are exempt from being added to income subject to taxation.


Rhode Island offers a standard deduction for Single and married filing single, status users of $8,000, $16,000 for those who file married, joint, and $12,000 for head of household.

Those with modified federal AGI between $185,550 and $206,590 hit a phase-out of the standard deduction offered. In additional to the state standard deduction, residents may qualify for the following deductions:

  • Investment in certified venture capital partnerships
  • Contributions to a family education account
