In Brewton, Alabama, an income tax is imposed on a certain percentage of the income of all individuals and businesses. Generally, income from all sources can be taxed. The federal government has the power 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 free to impose income taxes of their own.

Everybody 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 reside. Some states have no income tax at all. You should speak with an accountant or tax attorney in Brewton, Alabama if you don't know what the tax system is here.

You might have heard rumors claiming that you don't actually 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 failing to pay your income tax in Brewton, Alabama is a good way to end up in federal prison.

Income Tax Deductions in Brewton, Alabama

A tax deduction is a reduction in your taxable income. For example, if a person makes $50,000 per year, and receives a $2,000 tax deduction, they will only have to pay taxes on the remaining $48,000.

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

Many common expenses in Brewton can be deducted from your taxable income. They include mortgage interest, charitable donations (if property documented, of course), the cost of tax advice, union dues, and many others.

If you live in a state that has an income tax, some of these expenses might also be deductible, though that depends on the particular tax laws of Alabama.
