Indiana State Sign

Indiana's state income tax rate is a flat rate of 3.3% for all residents. This is lower than the national average. The state's tax revenue is more than $15 billion, which is close to the nation's median range. All residents, partial-year residents and nonresidents who earned income within the state are required to file an individual income tax return for the applicable year. Residents must use Form IT-40, and nonresidents and partial-year residents must use Form IT-40PNR.
