In Aliso Viejo, California, 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 California 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 Aliso Viejo, California if you are not clear about what your state and federal tax liability.
