Income Tax Lawyers in Everett, Massachusetts

Find the right Income Tax attorney in Everett, MA

In Everett, Massachusetts, income tax is imposed on most sources of income that a person receives in a certain year. Under federal, state, and most local laws income from all sources may be taxed. The federal government has had the constitutional authority to impose an income tax since 1916, since the passage of the 16th Amendment. Before then, states could, and still can, impose whatever income tax they like, including in Massachusetts.

While the federal income tax applies to everyone in the United States, the income taxes imposed by individual states vary widely, and some states have no income tax at all. You should consult with an Everett, Massachusetts tax lawyer or accountant to find out if your state is one of them.

Income Tax Deductions in Everett, Massachusetts

A tax deduction is an expense which, in whole or in part, is subtracted from a person's taxable income. For example, if you make ,000 in a year, and the tax rate is 10%, a reduction of ,000 results in only ,000 being taxed. This means that you will pay ,900 instead of ,000.

This should not be conflated with a tax credit, which is a reduction in your tax bill. A tax credit usually results in a greater reduction in tax liability than a reduction in the same amount.

Many expenses in Everett are tax-deductible, such as interest paid on mortgages, charitable contributions, the cost of tax advice, and union dues, among others.
