Why is my federal taxable income different than my state taxable income?

Very common.  Federal and State have different deductions, so your taxable income wont always be the same.

There are different deduction amounts must be considered. Standard deductions for federal returns are much different than they are for state returns.  have you have a chance to look at your federal and state forms, look to see how each state's taxable income was calculated. .
