Capital gains are taxed at 3 levels in the United States: federal, state and local. (to which one might have to add the Net Investment Income Tax (NIIT) if one's income is higher than some threshold.)

I'm curious to see the typical local tax rate on capital gains. Where can I see the local tax rates on capital gains? https://smartasset.com/investing/capital-gains-tax-calculator only allows to enter 1 location at the time, whereas I'd like to see an overview for the entire US (or at least one entire state).


For example, for state rates on capital gains, https://www.fool.com/taxes/2014/10/04/the-states-with-the-highest-capital-gains-tax-rate.aspx (mirror) gives a nice synopsis:

I imagine most local capital gains tax rates are equivalent to local income tax rates, for which I have found this article by the Tax Foundation to be the best summary. Here is their map: Local Income Tax Collections

Of course if you're really considering an area you'll have to look into it further to determine what exactly you'd pay and how/if it applies to capital gains. But this should give you a pretty good idea to get started, and also let you know what areas of the country you probably won't face any local income taxes.
