In Hartselle, Alabama, an income tax is imposed on a certain percentage of the income of all individuals and businesses. Typically, 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 Hartselle, Alabama if you don't know what the tax system is here.

For years, rumors have circulated that the federal income tax is illegal or unconstitutional. These rumors are false: the federal government has explicit constitutional power to tax income under the 16th Amendment. Still, "tax protesters" employ some fringe constitutional arguments, none of which have been successful. In Hartselle, Alabama, refusing to pay your income tax can, and likely will, result in criminal prosecution.

Income Tax Deductions in Hartselle, Alabama

A tax deduction is a reduction in one's 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.

This should not be conflated with a tax credit, which is a reduction in your tax bill. A tax credit normally results in a greater reduction in tax liability than a reduction in the same amount.

Lots of expenses that are common in Hartselle are tax deductible. Federal tax deductions include mortgage interest, union dues, interest paid on mortgages, and others.

If one's state imposes an income tax, some or all of these expenses may be deductible, as well. However, this will depend on the law of Alabama
