CD interest = 5100
CA tax on interest = 5100*.093 = 474.30
US tax on interest = (5100-474.3)*.28=1295.20
after tax from CD= 5100-474.30-1295.2 = 3330.5

Don't you deduct your California taxes on your Federal return? If so that would mean you have an additional 474.30*.28=132.80

That's what I was trying to do in the third line there. $5100 interest - 474.30 CA tax, the remainder taxed at 28%.

Did I do it wrong?
