Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries enforcement agents arrested a Lake Charles man for alleged firearm, drug and wildlife violations in Calcasieu Parish on April 11.

Agents arrested Garrett D. Sterling, 33, for filing false public records, possession of schedule IV narcotics, possession of schedule II narcotics, illegal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of a firearm while in possession of controlled dangerous substances, possession of a stolen firearm, using another person’s hunting license, bow hunting without a basic, big game and bow hunting licenses, and failing to comply with deer tagging requirements.

LDWF agents started investigating Sterling in November of 2021 when they received information that he illegally hunted and harvested a deer while using another person’s hunting license. Agents learned that Sterling harvested the deer with a bow without possessing a basic hunting, big game hunting and bow hunting licenses and used another person’s license and tags.

Agents got an arrest warrant for Sterling in February for filing false public records and made numerous attempts to contact him without any success. Agents then setup surveillance on Sterling’s residence and stopped Sterling in his vehicle leaving his house on April 11.

Agents found Sterling in possession of five firearms of which one was reported stolen and possession of illegal narcotics. He was subsequently booked into the Calcasieu Parish Jail.

Possession of a firearm while in possession of a controlled dangerous substance brings up to a ,000 fine and five to 10 years in jail. Illegal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon carries a ,000 to ,000 fine and five to 20 years in jail. Possession of a stolen firearm brings a one to five year jail term. Filing false public records brings up to a ,000 fine and five years in jail.

Failing to comply with deer tagging requirements brings up to a 0 fine. Using another person’s hunting license brings a 0 to 0 fine and up to 90 days in jail. Hunting without basic hunting, big game and bow hunting licenses carry up to a fine for each offense.

Sterling may also face civil restitution totaling up to ,033 for the replacement value of the illegally taken deer.

Agents participating in the case are Senior Agent Michael Treadway, Lt. Beau Robertson, Sgt. Carl Pickett, Corporal Michael Hebert, Senior Agent Dylan Armentor, and Senior Agent Michael Darbonne.

Data: Houston's median income lags behind other Texas cities

24-03-2022

Houston has fallen behind many major Texas cities in terms of annual household income, according to new data released by the U.S. Census Bureau. 

Following a four-month delay, the latest version of the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey (ACS) data was released last week. The new numbers offer a variety of data points for cities across the nation, including annual median income, education levels and commute times.

It's important to note the Census Bureau received far fewer responses in 2020 than at any point in the last two decades, largely due to issues posed by the pandemic. In 2020, Houston's annual median household income was ,600, roughly ,000 less than the state average of ,826. Out of 15 of Texas' most populous cities, Houston lags way behind, ranking No. 10 for annual income. Plano ranks No. 1 at ,348. 

EXPLAINER: Here's how Houston uses new census data to help plan the city's future

Houston's reputation for welcoming large populations of immigrants and refugees is one explanation as to why the Bayou City lags so far behind other cities, according to Bill Fulton, director of Rice University's Kinder Institute for Urban Research.

"Obviously Houston is a city of great wealth but it’s also a city of great income inequality," Fulton said. "Probably 30 to 40 percent of the households in this city are just barely scraping by...and really have no disposable income. They are not unemployed, but these are often people with lower educational attainment, sometimes immigrants who are working at low-wage jobs -- there’s a lot of low-wage service jobs in this city." 

Houston's median income in 2020 did increase from previous years. In 2015, the average income for a Houston household was ,187, according to 2011-2015 Census data. This means Houston residents' annual income increased by ,413 from 2015 to 2020. But when adjusted for inflation, that number drops to ,898.

The change in annual income for Austin residents jumped the most, with households earning ,063 more in 2020 than in 2015. When adjusted for inflation, that number is ,682 and is still the largest increase in income among the 15 Texas cities analyzed. 

But it's difficult to compare Austin to any other Texas city right now because of the massive boom its economy is experiencing, driven largely by tech corporations flocking there and setting down roots, Fulton said. 

INTERACTIVE: See how Houston, Harris County changed in the last decade, right down to your neighborhood

"The center of the world economically used to be Silicon Valley, but big chunks of Silicon Valley are moving to Austin, (and) lots of people with high incomes are moving to Austin," Fulton said. 

Austin's huge increase does not mean that residents there are all suddenly receiving big bonuses at their jobs. Instead what's more likely is that average income earners have been displaced by the large influx of people who recently moved to the city and are making much higher incomes, Fulton said. 

Editor's Note: Adjusting for inflation is generally done using nationwide consumer price index figures. However, it’s important to understand that inflation rates can be different at different geographic levels. For example, the overall U.S. inflation rate change between February 2021 and February 2022 is 7.9 percent, but the inflation rate for areas in the South region (which includes Texas) is higher, at 8.4 percent.

Where is Mount Magazine State Park?

Mount Magazine State Park is located within the Ozark-St. Francis National Forests in Paris, Arkansas. It is not too far from the Altus Wine Trail and Fort Smith, Arkansas.

Places to Stay at Mount Magazine State Park

  • Outside view of the Lodge at Mount Magazine State Park - Arkansas

The most popular place to stay at Mount Magazine State Park is the Lodge at Mount Magazine which has 60 guest rooms, a wonderful indoor swimming pool, conference and business centers, and Skycrest, a full-service restaurant. Each of the rooms at the Lodge at Mount Magazine offers fully-equipped kitchens, fireplaces, outdoor hot tubs, and covered decks that have gorgeous views of the Petit Jean River Valley and Blue Mountain Lake. All of these features make this the perfect place to stay for a romantic getaway, business conference, family retreat, or even a wedding.

If you want to stay in a spot that’s a bit more private but still has indoor amenities then consider booking one of the cabins at Mount Magazine State Park. The cabins are 1-3 bedrooms/bathrooms and some are even dog-friendly for an additional fee of . All of the cabins have views of the bluff and outdoor hot tubs!

In addition to the Lodge and cabins, there are also 18 campsites on Mount Magazine for those who are wanting to experience Mount Magazine camping whether it be by RV or tent. There are two class AAA and 16 class AA with tent-only options. Because spots are limited we recommend booking your campsite far in advance. 

Tips for Visiting Mount Magazine State Park

  • Download offline maps. Although we had service in some areas of Mount Magazine State Park on some of the trails it was a bit more spotty. Make sure that you download offline maps on either Google Maps or Apple Maps so you can always have access. In addition, I recommend getting park maps from the Visitor Center before hiking any of the trails.
  • Stay on marked trails. Whether you are hiking, biking, ATV riding, or horseback riding make sure you stay on the marked trails in Mount Magazine State Park (or any other park for that matter). While it might seem like a shortcut or easier path, going off trail can highly disrupt the delicate ecosystem and cause erosion in our state parks. 
  • Wear proper hiking shoes and watch your step. While we feel many of the Mount Magazine hiking trails are fairly easy or moderate, they are still quite rocky and at times can be slippery, even more so if there was recent rain. Make sure you wear good hiking shoes with grip and watch your step especially when close to the bluffs on some trails.
  • Pack a daypack for necessities. Anytime we are hiking we bring a daypack with a few necessities inside. Some of these items include a small first aid kit, a light jacket, headlamp or flashlight, water bottle, and snacks.
  • Do your best to leave no trace. I know this is a common phrase used when referring to outdoor activities but it’s an important reminder to not create new trails, pick wildflowers, leave garbage, or any other things that might disrupt the natural beauty of these trails. In fact, all animals and plants within the park are protected because they are within the national forest.
  • Be alert and aware of bears. Black bears are common in many Arkansas State Parks but especially so in Mount Magazine State Park. While they usually avoid humans, they are attracted to food so never bring food into your tent or feed bears. If you do happen to encounter a bear while hiking, slowly back away and keep your distance.

Things to Do at Mount Magazine State Park

Enjoy the Visitor’s Center

I always recommend checking out visitor centers at every state and national park we visit and this one is no different. Inside you’ll find public restrooms, a souvenir shop, and a museum to learn more about Mount Magazine State Park. But there are also trail maps and a plethora of other useful information that you can get to make navigating the trails and other sights easier. This is where you can get your Arkansas State Parks Passport stamped too!

Scenic Overlooks at Mount Magazine State Park

View of Cameron's Bluff at Mount Magazine State Park - Arkansas

Being the highest peak in Arkansas it’s evident that Mount Magazine would offer some fantastic viewpoints. In fact, on a clear day, it’s been said that you can view at least a quarter of the state! While many of the hiking trails in Mount Magazine State Park offer terrific viewpoints there are a few drivable viewpoints within the park as well. One of our favorites is the Petit Jean Overlook and the Cameron Bluff Overlook which has a parking lot that is right next to the viewpoint.

Mount Magazine Hiking

The network of Mount Magazine hiking trails is quite diverse! Here you’ll find trails for mountain biking, horseback riding, hiking, backpacking, and ATV riding.

Bear Hollow Trail

Distance: 2.8 miles
Approximate Time: 3 hours
Difficulty: Moderate
Trail Type: Day Hike

Bear Hollow Trail is one of the most popular hiking trails in Mount Magazine State Park because it offers some of the best scenery. Along this path, you’ll find many points of interest including Inspiration Point, Bear Head Bluff, and Shoal Creek. In fact, the trail crosses a number of creeks that lead to stunning water features and waterfalls given the right time of year and recent weather. The upper part of the hollow is home to one of the last remaining untouched hardwood forests in Arkansas. Although this hike is around 2.8 miles you can also make a shorter loop by connecting to the Benefield West Loop west of the main trail junction noted by orange blazes. 

Benefield Loop Trails 

Distance: 2 miles
Approximate Time: 2 hours
Difficulty: Easy
Trail Type: Day Hike

The Benefield Loop Trails consist of two separate loops centered around the Benefield Picnic Area. These trails are popular day hikes for those visiting Mount Magazine because they are relatively leisurely and have an abundance of nature to enjoy. During many times of the year, you can see an array of Arkansas wildflowers and plant life, and learn about the history of these trails.

As previously mentioned, the East Loop follows a path originally constructed by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) in 1938 and leads to Bear Hollow and a scenic overlook of the Petit Jean River.

The Benefield West Loop Trail leads across the highway to a wildlife pond then connects to the Mossback Ridge Trail (yellow blazes). It then returns to the picnic area entrance road where you can pass the grave of one of the children of Benjamin Benefield, a homesteader who once owned 160 acres here in the 1880s.

Cove Lake Trail 

Distance: 9.7 miles, 0.5 miles is within the state park boundaries
Approximate Time:
5 hours
Difficulty:
Moderate-Strenuous
Trail Type:
Day Hike, Backpacking

Cove Lake Trail starts in the Cameron Bluff Campground and descends over 1,500 feet to Cove Lake. Although this is considered to be a hiking trail within Mount Magazine State Park only half a mile of this trail is actually within the boundaries of the park. We haven’t personally hiked this trail yet but from what we’ve read, it is best enjoyed at a slower pace and is great for those who are beginner backpackers because overnight camping is allowed within the forest. 

Keep in mind that this is a national forest area and at certain times of the year, hunting is allowed. Because of this be sure to wear bright-colored clothing so hunters can see you clearly.  In addition, I’d also recommend informing someone outside of the park and the Visitor Center if you plan to hike this trail. As you get closer to Cove Lake, you’ll find some additional trail circles and camping, picnicking, and swimming areas within the Forest Service Recreation Area.

Greenfield Trail 

Distance: 0.9 miles
Approximate Time: 1 hour
Difficulty: Moderate
Trail Type: Day Hike

The Greenfield Trail starts at the Greenfield Picnic Area and Visitor’s Center, crosses the highway to Big Shoal Creek where it meets Mossback Ridge Trail. Many people consider it to be a great place to start a longer, 14-mile hike to Cove Lake (green blazes) but you can also do the short distance down an old wagon road to what’s known as Turkey Springs.

Huckleberry Mountain Horse Trail 

Distance: 34 miles, only .6 mile is within the state park boundaries
Difficulty: Moderate-Strenuous
Trail Type: ATV, Backpacking, Day Hike, Horseback Riding, Mountain Biking

Huckleberry Mountain Horse Trail is the only multi-use trail in Mount Magazine State Park that allows horses and motorized vehicles such as ATVs. It is also a great trail for those interested in mountain biking. 

Map to Huckleberry Mountain Horse Trail 

Mossback Ridge Trail 

Distance: 2.1 miles
Approximate Time: 2 hours
Difficulty: Moderate
Trail Type: Day Hike

The Mossback Ridge Trail is primarily a trail that is utilized for connecting to some of the other trails in Mount Magazine State Park such as Benefield West Loop, Greenfield, North Rim, and Signal Hill. However, there are still a number of beautiful sights to see on this trail including a variety of wildflowers and this is one of the trails that is famous for spotting black bears. Just remember to keep your distance if you come across a black bear.

North Rim Trail

Distance: 2.2 miles
Approximate Time: 3 hours
Difficulty: Moderate-Strenuous
Trail Type: Day Hike

The North Rim Trail starts just west of the visitor center and follows the north rim of Mount Magazine to Cameron Bluff Overlook Drive. While on the trail you’ll pass through hardwood forests of a variety of trees and a few creeks. Once arriving at the bluff you can have a spectacular view of the Arkansas River Valley and the Ozark Plateau before heading back either the same way you came or on the Mossback Ridge Trail making a 4.4-mile loop (red blazes).   

Signal Hill Trail 

Distance: 1.5 miles
Average Time:  2 hours
Difficulty: Moderate
Trail Type: Day Hike

Like Bear Hollow and the Benefield Loops, Signal Hill Trail is another hiking trail in Mount Magazine State Park that is not to be missed. While there are a lot of beautiful plants, wildflowers, and other scenery to enjoy on this hike, the main attraction is Signal Hill for which the trail received its name. Signal Hill is the highest point in Arkansas and at the very top, you’ll find a large stone map of Arkansas to view while peering off the hill.

Will Apple’s Road Trail

Distance: 1.6 miles
Average Time: 2 hours
Difficulty: Easy
Trail Type: Day Hike, Mountain Biking

Will Apple’s Road Trail was the first road that led to the crest of Mount Magazine. It became a prominent road during the 1800s because it allowed wagons to haul produce from the mountaintop to the valley. Today it serves as a hiking and mountain biking trail that starts just east of the visitor center and ends at the horse camp field. Logan and I have yet to mountain bike at Mount Magazine State Park but this is one of the trails that I look forward to trying first.

While on this trail you can enjoy domestic and wildflowers, historic home sites, birding, and the old 1920s swimming pool that is no longer in operation. Because it is a shared trail for hikers and mountain bikers be sure to stick to the designated paths and signal to hikers if mountain biking.

Rock Climbing at Mount Magazine State Park

Mount Magazine State Park is considered to be one of the most dramatic locations for technical rock climbing within Arkansas’ state park system. You can find traditional bouldering and sport climbing and at the mountain’s south bluff there is a designated area for rappelling. There are over 100 routes up to 80 feet high ranging in difficulty from 5.5-5.12c. Before beginning make sure you register at the visitor’s center which is required by the state park. 

Hang Gliding at Mount Magazine State Park

In addition to rock climbing, Mount Magazine State Park is one of two Arkansas State Parks that offers hang gliding launch areas! While my fear of heights has kept me from trying natural rock climbing and hang gliding, many hang gliding enthusiasts flock to this area because of its beautiful setting overlooking the Petit Jean River Valley. 

Before you take flight you are required to register at the visitor center and show proof of Class 4 Certification if you plan to fly alone. It is important to keep in mind that hang gliding can only happen at Mount Magazine State Park during optimal weather conditions. For now, I think I’ll keep both of my feet planted and watch the hang gliders take flight from a distance.

Enjoy Seasonal Birdwatching and Wildlife Migration

Box with pinned butterflies and information about butterfly migration at Mount Magazine State Park

For years Mount Magazine State Park has been a popular spot for viewing wildlife such as butterflies, birds, white-tailed deer, and black bears. The two most prominent are butterflies and birds. The best time of year to see birds is during the spring and fall. The migration of birds typically starts during the spring storms when birds will seek shelter from the rain before continuing their migration north. This is the best time to see woodland songbirds.

However, there are a number of bird species that stay to nest in Mount Magazine State Park. A few of these include Black-throated Green and Hooded Warblers, Scarlet and Summer Tanagers, Indigo Bunting, Ovenbirds, Yellow-billed Cuckoos, Broad-winged Hawks, and Cooper’s Hawks.

Another popular time to visit Mount Magazine State Park for wildlife migration is during September when the great Monarch Butterfly migration takes place. During the day you’ll often see a few monarch butterflies on wildflowers but as the sun sets, they gather together in groups!

Enjoy Park Programs at Mount Magazine State Park

Because Mount Magazine State Park is located within a national forest area and has a partnership with the USDA Forest Service there are a lot of conservation efforts in place creating a vibrant wildlife dynamic. This federal and state partnership allows guests to experience nature in a new way through park interpreter programs. Some of these programs include nature walks, identifying plants and birds, and learning more about the area’s butterfly migration.

State Income Tax Rates and Brackets, 2022

15-02-2022 · The bracket adjustment amount starts at 0 for individuals with net income of ,501 and decreases by for every 0 in additional net income. 295. (pp) Arizona H.B. 1828, enacted in 2021, reduces rates and the number of brackets for Tax Year 2022.

15-02-2022
  • Individual income taxes are a major source of state government revenue, accounting for 36 percent of state tax collections in fiscal year 2020, the latest year for which data are available.
  • Forty-three states levy individual income taxes. Forty-one tax wage and salary income, while New Hampshire exclusively taxes dividend and interest income and Washington taxes the capitals gains income of high earners. Seven states levy no individual income tax at all.
  • Of those states taxing wages, nine have single-rate tax structures, with one rate applying to all taxable income. Conversely, 32 states and the District of Columbia levy graduated-rate income taxes, with the number of brackets varying widely by state. Hawaii has 12 brackets, the most in the country.
  • States’ approaches to income taxes vary in other details as well. Some states double their single-bracket widths for married filers to avoid a “marriage penalty.” Some states index tax brackets, exemptions, and deductions for inflation; many others do not. Some states tie their standard deductions and personal exemptions to the federal tax code, while others set their own or offer none at all.

Individual income taxes are a major source of state government revenue, accounting for 36 percent of state tax collections. Their prominence in public policy considerations is further enhanced in that individuals are actively responsible for filing their income taxes, in contrast to the indirect payment of sales and excise taxes.

Forty-three states levy individual income taxes. Forty-one tax wage and salary income, while New Hampshire exclusively taxes dividend and interest income and Washington taxes the capital gains income of high earners. Seven states levy no individual income tax at all.

Of those states taxing wages, nine have single-rate tax structures, with one rate applying to all taxable income. Conversely, 32 states and the District of Columbia levy graduated-rate income taxes, with the number of brackets varying widely by state. Kansas, for example, is one of several states imposing a three-bracket income tax system. At the other end of the spectrum, Hawaii has 12 brackets. Top marginal rates range from North Dakota’s 2.9 percent to California’s 13.3 percent.

In some states, a large number of brackets are clustered within a narrow income band. For example, Georgia’s taxpayers reach the state’s sixth and highest bracket at ,000 in taxable income. In other states, the top rate kicks in at a much higher level of marginal income. For example, the top rate kicks in at million or more in California (when the “millionaire’s tax” surcharge is included), as well as in New Jersey, New York, and the District of Columbia. In New York, an additional top rate for income exceeding million was enacted during the 2021 legislative session.

Table 1 shows how each state’s individual income tax is structured.

States’ approaches to income taxes vary in other details as well. Some states double their single filer bracket widths for married filers to avoid imposing a “marriage penalty.” Some states index tax brackets, exemptions, and deductions for inflation, while many others do not.[2] Some states tie their standard deductions and personal exemptions to the federal tax code, while others set their own or offer none at all.

The federal Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA) increased the standard deduction (set at ,950 for single filers and ,900 for joint filers in 2022) while suspending the personal exemption by reducing it to through 2025. Because many states use the federal tax code as the starting point for their own standard deduction and personal exemption calculations, some states that previously coupled to these provisions in the federal tax code have updated their conformity statutes in recent years to either adopt federal changes, retain their previous deduction and exemption amounts, or retain their own separate system but increase the state-provided deduction or exemption amounts.

In the following tables we have compiled the most up-to-date data available on state individual income tax rates, brackets, standard deductions, and personal exemptions for both single and joint filers. After the tables, we document notable individual income tax changes implemented in 2022.

State Individual Income Tax Rates and Brackets, as of January 1, 2022
  Single Filer Married Filing Jointly Standard Deduction Personal Exemption
State Rates   Brackets Rates   Brackets Single Couple Single Couple Dependent

(a) Local income taxes are excluded. Eleven states have county- or city-level income taxes; the average rates expressed as a percentage of AGI within each jurisdiction are: 0.12% in Alabama; 0.01% in Delaware; 0.38% in Indiana; 0.12% in Iowa; 1.48% in Kentucky; 2.69% in Maryland; 0.22% in Michigan; 0.27% in Missouri; 1.69% in New York; 1.93% in Ohio; and 1.34% in Pennsylvania. In California, Colorado, Kansas, New Jersey, Oregon, and West Virginia, some jurisdictions have payroll taxes, flat-rate wage taxes, or interest and dividend income taxes. See Jared Walczak, “Local Income Taxes in 2019,” Tax Foundation, July 30, 2019, https://taxfoundation.org/local-income-taxes-2019/.

(b) These states allow some or all of federal income tax paid to be deducted from state taxable income.

(c) For single taxpayers with AGI below ,500, the standard deduction is ,500. This standard deduction amount is reduced by for every additional 0 of AGI, not to fall below ,000. For Married Filing Joint (MFJ) taxpayers with AGI below ,500, the standard deduction is ,500. This standard deduction amount is reduced by 5 for every additional 0 of AGI, not to fall below ,000. For all taxpayers with AGI of ,000 or less and claiming a dependent, the dependent exemption is ,000. This amount is reduced to 0 per dependent for taxpayers with AGI above ,000 and equal to or less than 0,000. For taxpayers with more than 0,000 in AGI, the dependent exemption is 0 per dependent.

(d) Statutory tax rates and brackets for 2022 are shown. Brackets are adjusted annually for inflation, but 2022 inflation adjustments were not available as of publication.

(e) Standard deduction and/or personal exemption is adjusted annually for inflation. Inflation-adjusted amounts for tax year 2022 are shown.

(f) Arizona’s standard deduction can be adjusted upward by an amount equal to 25 percent of the amount the taxpayer would have claimed in charitable deductions if the taxpayer had claimed itemized deductions.

(g) In lieu of a dependent exemption, Arizona offers a child tax credit of 0 per dependent under the age of 17 and per dependent age 17 and older. The credit begins to phase out for taxpayers with federal adjusted gross income (FAGI) above 0,000 (single filers) or 0,000 (MFJ).

(h) Rates apply to individuals earning more than ,500. A separate tax tables exist for individuals earning ,500 or less, with rates of 2 percent on income greater than or equal to ,000; 3 percent on income greater than or equal to ,000; 3.4 percent on income greater than or equal to ,300; 5 percent on income greater than or equal to ,600; and 5.5 percent on income greater than ,700 but less than or equal to ,500.

(i) Standard deduction or personal exemption is structured as a tax credit.

(j) Connecticut and New York have “tax benefit recapture,” by which many high-income taxpayers pay their top tax rate on all income, not just on amounts above the benefit threshold.

(k) Bracket levels adjusted for inflation each year. Inflation-adjusted bracket widths for 2022 were not available as of publication, so table reflects 2021 inflation-adjusted bracket widths.

(l) Exemption credits phase out for single taxpayers by for each ,500 of federal AGI above 2,288 and for MFJ filers by for each ,500 of federal AGI above 4,581. The credit cannot be reduced to below zero.

(m) Rates include the additional mental health services tax at the rate of 1 percent on taxable income in excess of million.

(n) State provides a state-defined personal exemption amount for each exemption available and/or deductible under the Internal Revenue Code. Under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the personal exemption is set at until 2026 but not eliminated. Because it is still available, these state-defined personal exemptions remain available in some states but are set to in other states.

(o) Standard deduction and/or personal exemption adjusted annually for inflation, but the 2022 inflation adjustment was not available at time of publication, so table reflects actual 2021 amount(s).

(p) Colorado, North Dakota, and South Carolina include the federal standard deduction in their income starting point.

(q) Connecticut has a complex set of phaseout provisions. For each single taxpayer whose Connecticut AGI exceeds ,500, the amount of the taxpayer’s Connecticut taxable income to which the 3 percent tax rate applies shall be reduced by ,000 for each ,000, or fraction thereof, by which the taxpayer’s Connecticut AGI exceeds said amount. Any such amount will have a tax rate of 5 percent instead of 3 percent. Additionally, each single taxpayer whose Connecticut AGI exceeds 0,000 shall pay an amount equal to for each ,000, or fraction thereof, by which the taxpayer’s Connecticut AGI exceeds 0,000 but is less than 0,000, and by an additional for each ,000, or fraction thereof, by which the taxpayer’s AGI exceeds 0,000, up to a maximum payment of ,150. For each MFJ taxpayer whose Connecticut AGI exceeds 0,500, the amount of the taxpayer’s Connecticut taxable income to which the 3 percent tax rate applies shall be reduced by ,000 for each ,000, or fraction thereof, by which the taxpayer’s Connecticut AGI exceeds said amount. Any such amount of Connecticut taxable income to which, as provided in the preceding sentence, the 3 percent tax rate does not apply shall be an amount to which the 5 percent tax rate shall apply. Each MFJ taxpayer whose Connecticut AGI exceeds 0,000 shall pay, in addition to the amount above, an amount equal to 0 for each ,000, or fraction thereof, by which the taxpayer’s Connecticut AGI exceeds 0,000, up to a maximum of ,400, and a further 0 for each ,000, or fraction thereof, by which Connecticut AGI exceeds million, up to a combined maximum payment of ,300.

(r) Connecticut taxpayers are also given personal tax credits (1-75%) based upon adjusted gross income.

(s) Connecticut’s personal exemption phases out by ,000 for each ,000, or fraction thereof, by which a single filer’s Connecticut AGI exceeds ,000 and a MFJ filer’s Connecticut AGI exceeds ,000.

(t) In addition to the personal income tax rates, Delaware imposes a tax on lump-sum distributions.

(u) Ga. Code §48-7-20(b) provides that Georgia’s top marginal individual income tax rate will be reduced to 5.5 percent for tax years beginning January 1, 2020 or later, and expiring on December 31, 2025, if a joint resolution to reduce the rate is ratified by both chambers of the General Assembly and the governor on or after Jan. 13, 2020. As of this writing, no such resolution has been adopted, so the top marginal individual income tax rate remains at 5.75 percent.

(v) Additionally, Hawaii allows any taxpayer, other than a corporation, acting as a business entity in more than one state and required by law to file a return, to report and pay a tax of 0.5 percent of its annual gross sales (1) where the taxpayer’s only activities in Hawaii consist of sales, (2) when the taxpayer does not own or rent real estate or tangible personal property, and (3) when the taxpayer’s annual gross sales in or into Hawaii do not exceed 0,000. Haw. Rev. Stat. § 235-51 (2015).

(w) Deduction and/or exemption tied to federal tax system. Federal deductions and exemptions are indexed for inflation, and where applicable, the tax year 2022 inflation-adjusted amounts are shown.

(x) As of June 1, 2017, taxpayers cannot claim the personal exemption if their adjusted gross income exceeds 0,000 (single filers) or 0,000 (MFJ).

(y) ,000 is a base exemption. If dependents meet certain conditions, filers can take an additional ,500 exemption for each.

(z) Standard deduction and personal exemptions are combined: ,500 for single and married filing separately; ,000 MFJ and head of household.

(aa) Maine’s personal exemption begins to phase out for taxpayers with income exceeding 9,500 (single filers) or 5,400 (MFJ) (2021 inflation adjustments). The dependent personal exemption is structured as a tax credit and begins to phase out for taxpayers with income exceeding 0,000 (head of household) or 0,000 (married filing jointly).

(bb) The standard deduction is 15 percent of income with a minimum of ,550 and a cap of ,350 for single filers and married filing separately filers. The standard deduction is a minimum of ,100 and capped at ,700 for MFJ filers, head of household filers, and qualifying widows/ widowers. The minimum and maximum standard deduction amounts are adjusted annually for inflation. 2022 inflation-adjusted amounts were not announced as of publication, so 2021 inflation-adjusted amounts are shown.

(cc) The exemption amount has the following phaseout schedule: If AGI is above 0,000 for single filers and above 0,000 for married filers, the ,200 exemption begins to be phased out. If AGI is above 0,000 for single filers and above 0,000 for married filers, the exemption is phased out entirely.

(dd) Bracket levels adjusted for inflation each year. Inflation-adjusted bracket levels for 2022 are shown.

(ee) For taxpayers whose AGI exceeds 3,025 (married filing separately) or 6,050 (all other filers), Minnesota’s standard deduction is reduced by the lesser of 3 percent of the excess of the taxpayer’s federal AGI over the applicable amount or 80 percent of the standard deduction otherwise allowable.

(ff) Montana filers’ standard deduction is 20 percent of AGI. For single taxpayers, the deduction must be between ,140 and ,830. For joint taxpayers, the deduction must be between ,280 and ,660.

(gg) New Hampshire does not tax earned income, but has a tax (currently phasing out) on interest and dividend income.

(hh) Ohio’s personal and dependent exemptions are ,400 for an AGI of ,000 or less, ,150 if AGI is more than ,000 but less than or equal to ,000, and ,900 if AGI is greater than ,000.

(ii) The personal exemption credit is not allowed if federal AGI exceeds 0,000 for single filers or 0,000 for MFJ.

(jj) The phaseout range for the standard deduction, personal exemption, and dependency exemption is 7,050 to 1,850. For taxpayers with modified Federal AGI exceeding 1,850, no standard deduction, personal exemption, or dependency exemption is available.

(kk) The standard deduction is taken in the form of a nonrefundable credit of 6 percent of the federal standard or itemized deduction amount, excluding the deduction for state or local income tax. This credit phases out at 1.3 cents per dollar of AGI above ,095 (,190 for married couples).

(ll) For taxpayers with federal AGI that exceeds 0,000, the taxpayer will pay the greater of state income tax or 3 percent of federal AGI.

(mm) The standard deduction begins to phase out at ,989 in income for single filers and ,519 in income for joint filers. The standard deduction phases out to zero at 5,240 for single filers and 4,845 for joint filers.

(nn) In lieu of the suspended personal exemption, New Mexico offers a deduction of ,000 for all but one of a taxpayer’s dependents.

(oo) Taxpayers with net income greater than or equal to ,501 but not greater than ,600 shall reduce the amount of tax due by deducting a bracket adjustment amount. The bracket adjustment amount starts at 0 for individuals with net income of ,501 and decreases by for every 0 in additional net income.

(pp) Arizona H.B. 1828, enacted in 2021, reduces rates and the number of brackets for Tax Year 2022. However, implementation of that law has been suspended pending the outcome of Prop. 307, to be decided in November 2022, so H.B. 1828’s rates are not shown here.

(qq) Taxpayers also receive an additional deduction of ,050 for each standard deduction box checked on federal Form 1040.

(rr) California and Oregon do not fully index their top brackets.

Notable 2022 State Individual Income Tax Changes

Last year was a historic year for income tax rate reductions, with more states reducing their individual income tax rates in a single year than the U.S. has seen since the years following the federal tax reform of 1986. In 2021 alone, 13 states enacted or implemented individual income tax rate reductions. Some of these rate reductions were effective starting January 1, 2022; some were retroactive to January 1, 2021; and others are scheduled to take effect in the future. Some of the scheduled future rate reductions rely on tax triggers, where rate reductions will occur once certain revenue benchmarks are met. Other rate reductions are set to occur on specific future dates, with rates phasing down incrementally over time.

New York and the District of Columbia were the only jurisdictions to enact individual income tax rate increases in 2021.

Notable changes to major individual income tax provisions include the following:

Arizona

Arizona’s 2022 tax changes are among the nation’s most complex, as they involve—among other things—the unwinding of a prior ballot measure. Proposition 208 (2020) had created a 3.5 percent high earners tax atop the state’s existing 4.5 percent top marginal income tax rate, functionally yielding a new top rate of 8 percent. Lawmakers effectively undid the ratification through legislation, lowering the base rates to ensure that the combined top rate never exceeded 4.5 percent. They simultaneously adopted revenue triggers that could create a lower, single-rate tax.

Senate Bill 1828 would have begun the state’s conversion from a graduated individual income tax to a flat individual income tax on January 1, 2022.[3] The transition would have initially collapsed the four current tax brackets into two. Single tax filers with taxable income up to ,272 (double if filing jointly) would have been taxed at a rate of 2.55 percent. Any taxable income exceeding that amount would have been taxed at a rate of 2.98 percent. Pending revenue triggers, the tax would eventually have been reduced to 2.5 percent, regardless of income level. However, enough signatures were gathered via petition that voters will now be asked to approve or reject the flat tax via ballot measure (Proposition 307) in the November 2022 election. In the meantime, implementation of S.B. 1828 has been suspended.

Pending the outcome of Proposition 307, Arizona’s top marginal rate is capped at 4.5 percent, even though a final decision on Proposition 208 is still pending judicial review.[4] Since the Arizona Supreme Court refused to suspend the law[5] while a lower court adjudicates details pertaining to the measure’s revenue allocation, the surtax remains in effect. Therefore, policymakers enacted S.B. 1827 to counteract the effects of Proposition 208 by automatically reducing the top marginal individual income tax rate by an amount that would keep the combined surtax and top rate from exceeding 4.5 percent.

Finally, under provisions of H.B. 2838,[6] Arizona will allow partnerships, limited liability companies (LLCs), and S corporations to pay a 4.5 percent tax at the entity level instead of having all business-related income pass through to the individual income tax. The law was passed as a SALT deduction cap workaround.[7]

Arkansas

Arkansas’s top individual income tax rate declined from 5.9 percent to 5.5 percent as a result of legislation passed during the state’s December 2021 special session.[8] Many states have multiple tax brackets, but Arkansas is unique in having entirely different tax rate schedules that vary according to income level. In 2022, the tax rate for nearly every low- and middle-income earner was reduced as legislators voted to collapse the two lower tax tables into one.

District of Columbia

As of January 1, 2022, Washington, D.C.’s individual income tax changed considerably. Enacted via the Fiscal Year 2022 Budget Support Act of 2021, the District increased the number of tax brackets from six to seven and altered many of the thresholds.[9] Changes begin for individuals with a D.C. taxable income between 0,000 and 0,000. They are assessed a tax of ,560 plus 9.25 percent of the excess over 0,000. Those with taxable income over 0,000 but not over million will pay ,775 plus 9.75 percent of the excess over 0,000. Finally, individuals with taxable income over million will be taxed ,525 plus 10.75 percent on any amount over million.

Georgia

On March 22, 2021, Georgia enacted H.B. 593, which increased the standard deduction for single filers from ,600 to ,400 in tax year 2022.[10]  The standard deduction for joint filers increased from ,000 to ,100.

Idaho

On May 10, 2021, Governor Brad Little (R) signed H.B. 380, reducing the state’s top marginal individual income tax rate from 6.925 to 6.5 percent while consolidating seven individual income tax brackets into five. These changes were retroactive to January 1, 2021. Under H.B. 380, Idaho’s top marginal individual income tax rate and third-lowest rate were both eliminated. The remaining rates were each reduced by 0.125 percentage points, except for the second-lowest rate, which was reduced by 0.025 percentage points.

On February 4, 2022, Governor Little signed H.B. 436, which further consolidates Montana’s five tax brackets to four.[11]  Under the new law, which is retroactive to January 1, 2022, the 5.5 percent bracket was eliminated, and the second-lowest rate was reduced from 3.1 percent to 3.0 percent. The top marginal rate remains at 6.5 percent.

Kansas

Kansas enacted S.B. 50, which increased the standard deduction for single filers from ,000 to ,500. Joint filers’ standard deduction will increase from ,500 to ,000. The change was made retroactive to tax year 2021.

Louisiana

Louisiana’s individual income tax looks significantly different than it did in 2021. With the approval of Amendment No. 2 in the general election held November 13, 2021,[12] the maximum individual income tax rate permitted by the state constitution decreased from 6 percent to 4.75 percent.[13] Contingent legislation then reduced individual income tax rates from 2 percent, 4 percent, and 6 percent to 1.85 percent, 3.5 percent, and 4.25 percent, respectively.[14] As of the first of the year, Louisiana’s top marginal rate is the fifth-lowest in the nation. Prior to 2022, the Pelican State’s top rate ranked 25th.

Mississippi

As of January 1, 2022, Mississippi has completed the phaseout of its 3 percent individual income tax brackets. The state has been slowly eliminating its lowest tax bracket by exempting ,000 increments every year since 2018. The Magnolia State now effectively exempts the first ,000 of taxable income while assessing a 4 percent tax on the next ,000 and a 5 percent tax on all taxable income above ,000.

Montana

Under S.B. 159, enacted on May 6, 2021, Montana’s top marginal individual income tax rate was reduced from 6.9 to 6.75 percent on January 1, 2022.[15] Additional changes enacted via S.B. 399 will take effect in subsequent years.[16] These include consolidating the state’s seven individual income tax brackets into two, with rates of 4.7 and 6.5 percent by 2024. The state will also adopt federal taxable income as the income tax starting point, thereby bringing in the federal standard deduction. Importantly, S.B. 399 will double the bracket widths for married filers, thereby removing the marriage penalty that currently exists in the state’s income tax code.

New York

While the change is retroactive to January 1, 2021, New York’s individual income tax increase is notable as one of only two individual income tax rate increases implemented in the last year. As part of the FY 2022 Enacted Budget Bill, New York’s top marginal rate for individual income taxation increased from 8.2 percent to 10.9 percent. Importantly, two tax brackets were added to the individual income tax code. Individuals are now assessed a tax of 9.65 percent on New York taxable income greater than ,616,450 but not more than million. Individuals are also subject to a 10.3 percent tax on taxable income greater than million but not more than million. Any taxable income exceeding million is subject to the top marginal rate of 10.9 percent.

Those earning between ,900 and 5,400 are subject to marginal tax decreases as the corresponding rates decreased from 5.9 percent and 6.33 percent to 5.85 percent and 6.25 percent, respectively. The 5.97 percent marginal rate on income between ,400 and ,650 was eliminated.

North Carolina

Under provisions of North Carolina’s biennial budget bill signed by Governor Roy Cooper (D) on November 18, 2021, the state’s flat income tax rate was reduced to 4.99 percent on January 1, 2022.[17] This is the first of six incremental reductions that will ultimately reduce the rate to 3.99 percent by tax year 2027.

Ohio

On July 1, 2021, Governor Mike DeWine (R) signed H.B. 110, the budget for the FY 2022-23 biennium. The law consolidated the state’s previous five individual income tax brackets into four and reduced each of the rates retroactive to January 1, 2021.[18] Specifically, the law reduced the top marginal rate from 4.797 to 3.99 percent and reduced the other rates by 3 percent across the board. The income level at which the first tax rate kicks in is also increased from ,150 to ,000, providing targeted tax relief at the lower end of the income spectrum.[19]

Oklahoma

Oklahoma implemented numerous changes to the individual income tax in 2022 including an across-the-board rate reduction of 0.25 percent.[20] The top rate declined from 5 to 4.75 percent, making it the ninth-lowest top marginal rate among states that levy an individual income tax. The same law also restored the refundability of the state’s earned income tax credit (EITC), which was made nonrefundable in 2016.

Wisconsin

On July 8, 2021, Gov. Tony Evers (D) approved the biennial budget for FYs 2022-23 (A.B. 68) with partial vetoes.[21] One of the approved provisions in the budget was a reduction of the second-highest individual income tax rate from 6.27 to 5.3 percent, retroactive to January 1, 2021. At 6.27 percent, Wisconsin’s penultimate individual income tax rate was higher than the top marginal rates in 23 states that levy an individual income tax. Kicking in at just over ,000 in taxable income for single filers and ,000 for married couples, Wisconsin’s second-highest rate affects the vast majority of the state’s taxpayers, with most paying more in income taxes to Wisconsin than they would with the same amount of income in most other states.

PHOENIX - An Arizona dog who vanished more than a year ago was presumed dead. But somehow, some way, she's alive and well today.

Only Lilibeth knows her miraculous story of survival. The rest of us can only guess how she made it this long, lost and alone.

"Lilibeth probably survived on cat food and water left out for the cats, so we're very fortunate she was able to survive 15 months out on her own," said Barb Savoy with Friends for Life.

According to Gilbert animal rescue Friends For Life, the cute puppy was being fostered back in 2021 by Carly Fife. She said the pup had been adopted out to another family, but one day later she got loose.

"Immediately went to look for her, because I had just bonded with her," Fife said. "We looked several days that week, put up signs and walked the alleys. And at a certain point I thought she couldn't be found, she couldn't survive out there."

Her owners eventually gave up and got a new dog. 

Another local animal rescue nonprofit known as the Humane Animal Rescue and Trapping Team (HARTT) started looking for another lost dog three blocks away from where Lilibeth went missing, Savoy said.

"The neighbor said, ‘Hey look, there’s that dog that's been hanging around for about a year,'" said Barb Savoy. "She looked distressed, and they were able to trap her and scan for her microchip back to us, and not only was she able to find her way back to us, but to her original foster family that was kind enough to foster her again."

Lilibeth when she was found.

She was covered in mats and has some wounds, but other than that, she is okay and happy to return to a home that loved her. 

"I think she remembered our home and the smells and everything, so she adjusted pretty quickly," said Carly Fife. "Probably the next day she was jumping up the stairs on the couch, tail wagging."

It's an unbelievable end to a tale for a dog that may have just as many lives as a cat.

It's also a reminder to get your dogs microchipped. Lilibeth was not only microchipped but even still had her original collar on - rescuers think she was just scared and hiding out of sight.

The pup will go up for adoption in a few weeks.

Airfares rose record 18.6 percent in April

11-05-2022

Airfares jumped 18.6 percent from March to April, according to data released Wednesday by the Labor Department, the largest month-over-month increase for plane tickets on record.

The huge jump comes after airfares increased 10.7 percent from February to March. Overall, flights were 33.3 percent more expensive than they were in April of last year. 

Airlines point to rising fuel costs and a surge in demand for summer flights as the driving forces behind airfare hikes. Several of the nation’s leading airlines reduced their flight schedules in the coming months to dampen the impact of higher fuel prices, keep airfares elevated and limit potential delays and cancellations.

During a roundtable hosted by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Tuesday, industry officials predicted that U.S. travel will nearly reach pre-pandemic levels this summer, with airports potentially screening a record 3 million passengers on the busiest day.

“We expect this summer to be very, very busy,” TSA Administrator David Pekoske said. “Spring break was very busy. We generally saw passenger volumes recover to over 90 percent of pre-pandemic levels, and in some airports well in excess of pre-pandemic levels.”

Industry executives say passengers are willing to pay higher fares to get in on summer travel. On an earnings call last month, Delta Air Lines President Glen Hauenstein said the airline hasn’t “seen a lot of resistance” to the current prices.

Airlines say the skyrocketing price of fuel, stemming from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and pandemic-induced supply chain bottlenecks, bleeds into airfares. 

Customer satisfaction with airlines dropped for the first time in a decade over the last year, according to a J.D. Power survey released Wednesday, with respondents citing higher airfares and more crowded planes. 

Airfares saw one of the largest increases among all products and services in Wednesday’s Labor Department report. Overall, inflation cooled off slightly, increasing by 0.3 percent last month and rising 8.3 percent over the last year.

Moon Alert: There are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions today. The Moon is in Libra.

Happy Birthday for Friday, May 13, 2022:

You are reliable and dependable. You are also witty, friendly and loyal to family. You work hard to achieve what you want. This year you will be of service to others, especially family. Take care of yourself as well. Enroll in a class or get a makeover.

ARIES

(March 21-April 19) ★★

Because of the possibility of transportation delays, missed buses and auto breakdowns (to name a few reasons for hang-ups today), be smart and give yourself extra time so you have wiggle room to deal with the unexpected. You’ll be glad you did. Tonight: Get advice.

TAURUS

(April 20-May 20) ★★★

Double-check financial dealings in case there are errors that will create future delays. If you’re looking for a job, go back to where you have applied or worked before, because contacts from the past will be your best option. Checks in the mail are late. Tonight: Get organized.

GEMINI

(May 21-June 20) ★★★★

Don’t be hard on yourself for forgetting things, leaving things behind, missing appointments or running late, because these are par for the course when Mercury retrograde is taking place in your sign. Lighten up! Enjoy your day. It’s a brief dark cloud on your horizon. Tonight: Practice and teach.

CANCER

(June 21-July 22) ★★★

Your ability to research and dig up answers from the past is strong because of the placement of Mercury retrograde in your chart. Your mind is like a diamond drill bit that can burrow deep down to find what you’re looking for. Tonight: Accept support.

LEO

(July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★★

This is a good time to examine your attitude toward a group, club or organization to which you belong. You might want to discuss a problem with a friend, something that’s been going on for a while. You might see a way to remedy things so that in the future, things will work better for everyone. Tonight: Make plans.

VIRGO

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★

This is the perfect day to wrap up old business, especially if it means talking to a boss or an employer. In fact, you might want to reassess old goals. This is a good time to finish any kind of course or training that you have been doing to help your career. Tonight: Be thrifty.

LIBRA

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★★

Although delays to travel plans are likely, you will find that your ability to study and learn is excellent. You will get the best results if you study something from the past — history, archaeology, anthropology — or if you finish a paper or project that was already started. Tonight: Work.

SCORPIO

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★

During this window of Mercury retrograde, you will find it easy to wrap up details that have been dragging on regarding insurance matters, wills, estates, inheritances and anything to do with shared property. You can get this stuff done now! Tonight: Research.

SAGITTARIUS

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ★★★★

Mercury goes retrograde three times a year. It is retrograde now, and this particular Mercury retrograde is taking place opposite your sign. This is why you will attract old partners and ex-spouses back into your life — possibly an opportunity for closure. Tonight: Someone knows more.

CAPRICORN

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ★★★★

Be patient with delays and silly goof-ups and mistakes at work. Late deliveries, mixed-up communications, machinery breakdowns and staff shortages will be par for the course. Instead, work to finish old projects, because these will go quickly and be successful. Tonight: Follow instructions.

AQUARIUS

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★★

Many things from the past might be bubbling up on your plate now. Old flames and romantic interests might be one of them. Meanwhile, some of you will have a chance to get a diagnosis for an ailment or sickness that has plagued you. At last — clarity. Tonight: Study.

PISCES

(Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★

Do take advantage of this window of opportunity that is yours for a few more weeks, because it will help you finish repair projects at home and wrap up important family conversations, including disputes. Anything that helps should not be ignored. Tonight: Take care of paperwork.
