2013 California Inflation Adjustments

Posted by taxguru on August 23, 2013

Unlike the IRS, where the inflation adjustments to the tax brackets and other figures are announced before the beginning of the next year, the Calif FTB doesn’t announce theirs until the year is almost over.

They have just released their inflation adjustments for the 2013 tax rates and figures on their website, based on their calculation of the rate of inflation being 1.7% between 7/1/12 and 6/30/13.

For those comparing taxes between states, the summary at the top of this page is handy:


Corporate tax rates

Entity type

Tax rate
Corporations other than banks and financials 8.84%
Banks and financials 10.84%
Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) rate 6.65%
S corporation rate 1.5%
S corporation bank and financial rate 3.5%

Individual tax rates

  • The maximum rate for individuals is 12.3%
  • The AMT rate for individuals is 7%
  • The Mental Health Services Tax Rate is 1% for taxable income in excess of $1,000,000.
