Learn About Tax Law And
How It Applies To You

Our free tax law facts section covers basic taxation facts with regards to the different levels of government that may levy taxes.  Taxing authority is available to municipalities, counties, regional service entities such as school districts, State governments and the federal government.

The federal government levies many taxes including income tax, estate tax, import duty, excise taxes and a myriad of other special taxes and fees.  Income tax on individuals, corporations and other entities is the primary source of revenue for the U.S. Government.

States and local governments, on the other hand, collect most of their taxes from a combination of real property tax, personal property tax, sales tax and income tax.  In some places, residents may pay income taxes to federal, state and city governments.

Concurrent with income taxes, the federal government also collects FICA or social security taxes and Medicare taxes.  These taxes fund two of the ever growing entitlement programs created by the U.S. Congress.  The social security system technically is not an entitlement program since the original intent was a for a forced retirement savings plan a worker would fund over his or her lifetime.  Unfortunately, unscrupulous Congresses over the years spent the money workers saved and today social security payments for retired workers are funded by the payments of those still working in a never ending Congressional ponzi scheme.
