In Foley, Alabama, an income tax is imposed on a certain percentage of the income of all individuals and businesses. Usually, 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 Foley, 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 authority to tax income under the 16th Amendment. Still, "tax protesters" employ some fringe constitutional arguments, none of which have been successful. In Foley, Alabama, failing to pay your income tax can, and likely will, result in criminal prosecution.

Income Tax Deductions in Foley, Alabama

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

This should not be confused with a tax credit, which is simply a reduction in somebody's tax bill. A tax credit will typically reduce your tax liability far more than a tax deduction of the same amount.

Many expenses in Foley are tax-deductible, such as interest paid on mortgages, charitable donations, the price of tax advice, and union dues, among 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 specific tax laws of Alabama.
