North Dakota Enacts Personal Income Tax and Property Tax Relief

Authored by: George Gonzales, MST and Brandon Mejia

On April 28, 2023, Governor Doug Burgum signed L.2023, HB1158, which reduces individual tax burdens for residents of the Peace Garden State. Effective for tax years after December 31, 2022, L.2023, HB1158 reduces the number of individual income tax brackets and tax rates. Following is a summary of North Dakota’s new personal income tax rates:

Single Filer’s (SF) Brackets Married Filing Joint (MFJ) Brackets Married Filing Separately (MFS) Brackets Heads of Household (HH) Brackets Estates & Trusts (ET) Brackets Tax Year 2023 Tax Rate
$0 – $44,725 $0 -$74,750 $0 – $37,375 $0 – $59,950 $0 – $3,000 0.00%
$44,726 – $225,975 $74,751 – $275,100 $37,376 – $137,550 $59,951 – $250,550 $3,001 – $10,750 1.95%
$225,976+ $275,101+ $137,551+ $250,551+ $10,751+ 2.5%

Previously, the state imposed a 1.1% rate on the first dollar of income, and the top marginal rate was 2.9%. As such, the enacted bracket reductions and rate cuts help taxpayers at all ends of the income spectrum.

Effective for the first two taxable years after December 31, 2023, North Dakota residents may claim a $500 credit against property tax due on an individual’s primary residence to reduce the property tax owed after other available exemptions.

Also, within this legislation, resident individuals 65 years or older and individuals who are permanently or totally disabled will be eligible to receive additional reductions in the assessed value on a primary residence, effective for taxable years beginning after December 31, 2022.

For additional detail, please refer to North Dakota House Bill No. 1158.
