State income taxes are payable to each individual state; for example, Ohio residents make income tax payments to the Ohio Department of Taxation, while Virginia residents make their state income taxes payable to the Virginia Department of Taxation, according to the Virginia Department of Taxation's website. Different states have different state-level tax agencies to handle personal and business state tax payments. These taxes differ from federal taxes.
State taxes are processed by individual states, which have their own tax agencies that may differ in structure and size. For example, while Ohio and Virginia both have Departments of Taxation, in Maryland, taxes are paid to the Comptroller of Maryland's Revenue Administration Division, according to the Comptroller of Maryland's website. Citizens of a given state can find out more about remitting payment to their state tax agencies by going to their state's government website or asking their employer.
