USA has separate federal, state and local governments with taxes imposed on each level. Taxes are imposed on income, payroll, property, sales, capital gains, dividends, imports, estates and gifts along with various fees. Taxes fall more heavily on labor income in comparison to capital income. Divergent taxes and subsidies for different types of income and spending also constitutes a type of indirect taxation of a few activities over others.
Taxes are levied on net income of individuals and corporations by federal, mostly state and a few local governments. Citizens and residents are taxed on the basis of worldwide income and allowed a credit for foreign taxes. Income subject to tax is determined under the rules of tax accounting instead of financial accounting principles and includes income from every source. Many business expenses decrease taxable income and limits are applicable to a few expenses.
Individuals are allowed to decrease taxable income through personal allowances and non-business expenses which includes home mortgage interest, state and local taxes, charitable contributions and medical and other expenses incurred above a certain percentage of income. States rules to determine taxable income are mostly different from federal rules.
