The Minnesota Department of Revenue has released the adjusted individual income tax rates for 2014.
The tweaks are designed to ensure that rising interests rates don't bump taxpayers into higher tax brackets while their incomes remain stagnant. Those adjustments do not change the tax rates that apply to each income bracket.
In the coming year, the marginal state income tax rates will range from 5.35 percent for the lowest income bracket -- individuals earning less than $36,080 a year -- up to 9.85 percent for the wealthiest 2 percent of Minnesotans -- individuals who earn more than $152,541 or couples filing jointly who earn more than $254,241. The Legislature created the new fourth income tax tier in the last session, as part of the $2.1 billion tax bill.
