Of course, individual states, including Virginia, were allowed to impose income taxes as 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 a Hopewell, Virginia tax lawyer if you don't know what type of tax system your state has.

Income Tax Deductions in Hopewell, Virginia

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.
