In Utica, New York, the income tax is a tax imposed on money received (income) during a given set time period. Under federal law, and the laws of most states, income from any source may be taxed. The federal government has the constitutional authority to tax income thanks to the 16th Amendment, which was enacted in 1916. Before that time, the U.S. Supreme Court had consistently declared the federal income tax unconstitutional, but individual states, including New York were allowed to impose an income tax if they saw fit.

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 fairly high income taxes, and a few have none at all. You should consult with an Utica, New York tax lawyer if you don't know what type of tax system your state has.
