How we calculate your income tax

The tax system in the US works on a pay-as-you-go basis, so the IRS collects income taxes throughout the year via payroll. Ideally, if you are a W-2 employee, you automatically get your taxes withheld by your employer. However, as a freelancer, taxes aren’t a cakewalk. They have to pay a bit extra in “self-employment tax” to contribute to Social Security and Medicare.

If you’re a W-2 employee then most likely, your taxes are already being withheld for you by your employer and you typically get a tax refund. Freelancers, self-employed individuals, and business owners have to handle their own taxes including the quarterly estimated tax payments.

Sounds complicated?

Fret not! Apps like FlyFin can help ease your burden.

With FlyFin you can stay on top of your taxes by paying your quarterly estimated obligations and tracking your business expenses. The A.I. calculates your taxes based on several inputs (your profession & income) and detects all possible deductions which ensures an accurate tax amount.

## Income Taxes inNew York

Every state's tax code in the United States has a variety of facets and moving pieces. New York is no different in this regard. The state's tax structure combines a sales tax that is relatively modest (4%, tied for third-lowest in the nation) with an income tax system that largely favors the wealthy. The Big Apple's citizens do, however, pay some of the highest local rates in the country due to the fact that New York City (NYC) also collects its own income taxes.
