Income Tax Lawyers in Canton, Ohio

Find the right Income Tax attorney in Canton, OH

In Canton, Ohio, the income tax is a tax imposed on money received (income) during a certain set time period. Under federal law, and the laws of most states, income from any source can be taxed. The federal government has the constitutional power to tax income thanks to the 16th Amendment, which was enacted in 1916. Before that time, the U.S. Supreme Court had repeatedly declared the federal income tax unconstitutional, but individual states, including Ohio were free 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 relatively high income taxes, and a few have none at all. You should consult with a Canton, Ohio tax attorney if you don't know what type of tax system your state has.
