What is the Non-Indiana Locality Earnings Deduction?

You may be allowed a deduction if you have income being taxed by a locality (local governmental unit) located in another state. A "locality" could be a city, county, parish, etc.

Example: You earned wages in Louisville, KY. Your employer withheld a Louisville city (locality) tax. Since your wages were taxed by a non-Indiana locality (Louisville), you are eligible to take a deduction.

The deduction is limited. You may deduct the amount of your income that was taxed by a non-Indiana locality or $2,000, whichever is less. If you and your spouse both qualify, you may each claim the deduction for a maximum of $4,000 (limited to no more than $2,000 per person).
