And, as you know, the top income tax bracket in New Jersey was increased from 8.97% to 10.75% on income above $1 million.

By comparison, Pennsylvania utilizes a “flat tax” system. This means that every taxpayer in the state, regardless of their level of income, pays the same percentage of their taxable income in state income taxes — 3.07%. Among the eight states with a flat income tax, that is the lowest rate. Pennsylvania’s corporate income tax rate of 8.99% also compares favorably to New Jersey’s 11.50%, which is the highest rate in the country.
