In Alexander, Alabama, an income tax is imposed on a certain percentage of the income of all individuals and businesses. Generally, income from all sources may be taxed. The federal government has the authority to impose an income tax thanks to the 16th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, enacted in 1916 after the Supreme Court had, on more than one occasion, found a federal income tax to be unconstitutional. Of course, before and after the creation of the federal income tax, states, including Alabama were allowed to impose income taxes of their own.

Everyone in the U.S. is subject to the federal income tax. But you are only subject to the income tax of the state in which you live. Some states have no income tax at all. You should speak with an accountant or tax lawyer in Alexander, Alabama if you don't know what the tax system is here.

You might have heard rumors claiming that you don't really have to pay your federal income tax. These rumors are false. "Tax protesters" rely on bizarre and discredited legal arguments in their claims that the federal income tax is somehow illegal. None of these arguments have ever been successful in U.S. Courts, and deliberately refusing to pay your income tax in Alexander, Alabama is a good way to end up in federal prison.

Income Tax Deductions in Alexander, Alabama

A tax deduction is simply a reduction in the part of a person's income that is taxable. For example, if someone makes $50,000 per year, and gets a $1,000 tax deduction, their taxable income is $49,000.

Don't confuse a tax deduction with a tax credit. A tax credit simply lowers your tax bill by the amount of the credit. A tax credit usually reduces your tax bill more than a reduction of the same amount.

Many common expenses in Alexander can be deducted, in whole or in part, from your taxable income. Federal tax deductions include charitable contributions, union dues, interest paid on a mortgage, and state and local taxes.

If one's state has an income tax, some of these expenses may be deductible from your state taxes, as well, but that depends on the law of Alabama.
