In Inglewood, 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 had explicit constitutional power to impose an income tax since 1916, with the passage of the 16th Amendment. This came after the Supreme Court had repeatedly found a federal income tax to be unconstitutional. States, including California, have always been free to impose whatever type of income tax they liked.

While the federal government levies an income tax against every person and corporation in the U.S., the income taxes imposed by the states vary widely. Some states have relatively high income taxes, and a few have none at all. You should consult with a Inglewood, California tax attorney if you don't know what type of tax system your state has.

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 Inglewood, California, failing to pay your income tax can, and likely will, result in criminal prosecution.

Income Tax Deductions in Inglewood, California

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 common expenses in Inglewood can be deducted from your taxable income. They include mortgage interest, charitable donations (if property documented, of course), the cost of tax advice, union dues, and many 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 California.
