Scottsdale, AZ April 23rd, 2013 - Symmetry Software, specialists in payroll withholding tax solutions for the internet and corporate intranets, is naming the top cities in America for take-home pay in an infographic available on to help individuals where they can get the most out of their paychecks.

We all know that where we live impacts how much money we make in our gross pay, but few stop to consider that state and city payroll withholding taxes impact the amount of money we take home in our paychecks as our net pay. Now that most Americans are over the hurdle of filing their tax returns, Symmetry’s, a site offering personal paycheck management calculators, is releasing the top cities for take home pay so that folks can determine where they can get the most out of their paychecks.  Considering two different scenarios, PaycheckCity examines the difference in annual take home pay for cities across the country in the infographic. 

The full version of the infographic available on, details the take home pay for individuals in the following scenarios:
• Single, making $40,000 per year
• Married, making $40,000 per year

The infographic walks the viewer through the cities where they can maximize their paycheck based on the state and city tax codes. The best Paycheck Cities end up being cities where there is no city or state tax.  The infographic further details helpful personal paycheck management information such as an explanation of the difference between gross and net pay, and a breakdown of how net pay is calculated.  Finally, for those individuals who are inspired to move based on their city’s taxes, the infographic displays states with no state income tax or a flat tax, as well as displays the seven states with the highest income taxes.  The infographic isn’t the only place to find out this helpful information. Tom Reahard, CEO of Symmetry Software, states, “With PaycheckCity’s online calculators, individuals can see for themselves what cities will give them the best take home pay.”

Here is the methodology for how the statistics in the infographic were determined: All salary and paycheck calculations were run on Salary was set at $40,000, federal and state allowances were set at one for single and two for married.  The highest income tax states represent the 7 states whose highest income tax brackets have rates greater than 8%.
