Standard deduction for single or married filing separate taxpayers $3,906 $3,841
Standard deduction for joint, surviving spouse, or head of household taxpayers $7,812 $7,682
Personal exemption credit amount for single, separate, and head of household taxpayers $106 $104
Personal exemption credit amount for joint filers or surviving spouses $212 $208
Dependent exemption credit $326 $321
Renter’s Credit is available for single filers with adjusted gross incomes: $36,955 or less $36,337 or less
Renter’s Credit is available for joint filers with adjusted gross incomes: $73,910 or less $72,674 or less

We’ll post the updated income tax brackets when they become available from the Franchise Tax Board.
