#### Considerations in this Iowa State tax calculation

- Iowa applies a tax credit rather than a Standard deduction. In this calculation, we deduct the Iowa state tax credit of $40.00 from your State Taxes Due.
- Iowa tax law stipulates that your Federal taxes may be deducted from your gross income for purposes of computing the State income tax.

So**S - F = Adjusted Taxable income for Iowa**(where F = Full Federal Tax calculation and S = State taxable income for Iowa).

In this tax example: $87,920.00 - $12,060.50 = $75,859.50

So..**Revised State Taxable Income: $75,859.50**
