In Bellflower, California, 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 California were free to impose income taxes of their own.

The federal income tax must be paid by everybody 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 attorney in Bellflower, California if you are not clear about what your state and federal tax liability.
