The centerpiece of the budget is a sharp increase in the standard income tax deduction, from the current $4,500 for individuals and $9,000 for joint filers to $8,000 and $16,000, respectively.

The increases take place only if state revenue continues to grow by certain amounts, and are set to end before the 2026 tax year. The budget also eliminates the 1.5 percent state tax on groceries but leaves intact the additional 1 percent grocery tax that localities may levy.
