Here's how much money you actually take home from a $75,000 salary depending on where you live

$US75,000 a year looks very different depending on where you live. Some states like Texas and Washington don’t have state income taxes. So on average, you could see a bigger paycheck.

We decided to crunch the numbers. Here’s what $US75,000 looks like after paying taxes in 11 major US cities:

New York City, NY – $US49,896

Washington, DC – $US51,696

Los Angeles, CA – $US51,960

San Francisco, CA – $US51,960

Boson, MA – $US52,824

Denver, CO – $US53,184

Chicago, IL – $US53,592

Seattle, WA – $US56,328

Nashville, TN – $US56,328

Miami, FL – $US56,328

Dallas, TX – $US56,328

These numbers don’t factor in health insurance and retirement accounts like a 401(K). But judging by the average $US75K salary you may be a lot happier in Dallas than in NYC.
