In Yuma County, Arizona, 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 Arizona were allowed to impose income taxes of their own.

The federal income tax must be paid by everyone in the U.S. However, you must only pay the state income tax of the state you live in. You should talk with a financial adviser or tax lawyer in Yuma County, Arizona if you are not clear about what your state and federal tax liability.

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 Yuma County, Arizona is a good way to end up in federal prison.

Income Tax Deductions in Yuma County, Arizona

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.

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 Yuma County can be deducted from your taxable income. They include mortgage interest, charitable contributions (if property documented, of course), the price of tax advice, union dues, and many 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 Arizona
