United States: Roundup of state tax changes impacting employees and employers of mobile workforces

Oct 2017

Various states have made changes to their individual income tax regimes relevant for the 2017 tax year that are likely to impact mobile employees and their employers. This Insight provides a sampling of these changes for states including Illinois, Kansas, Maine, North Carolina, and Indiana.

Broadly speaking, these developments indicate some opposing trends - some states are lowering rates and overall tax burdens on their individual residents, however, others are increasing their tax rates, broadening phase-outs for itemized deductions, and limiting credits to address budgetary issues. Mobility programs should consider the impact on tax equalization calculations, policies, and costs, as well as withholding responsibilities.
