An income tax is a tax imposed on individuals or entities (taxpayers) in respect of the income or profits earned by them (commonly called taxable income). Income tax generally is computed as the product of a tax rate times the taxable income. Taxation rates may vary by type or characteristics of the taxpayer and the type of income.
The term income tax refers to a type of tax that governments impose on income generated by businesses and individuals within their jurisdiction. By law, taxpayers must file an income tax return annually to determine their tax obligations.
Income taxes are a source of revenue for governments. They are used to fund public services, pay government obligations, and provide goods for citizens.
Most countries employ a progressive income tax system in which higher-income earners pay a higher tax rate compared to their lower-income counterparts.
The personal income tax the government collects can help fund government programs and services, such as Social Security, national security, schools, and roads.
Individual income tax is also referred to as personal income tax. This type of income tax is levied on an individual’s wages, salaries, and other types of income. This tax is usually a tax the state imposes. Because of exemptions, deductions, and credits, most individuals do not pay taxes on all of their income.
Most jurisdictions require self-assessment of the tax and require payers of some types of income to withhold tax from those payments. Advance payments of tax by taxpayers may be required. Taxpayers not timely paying tax owed are generally subject to significant penalties, which may include jail for individuals or revocation of an entity’s legal existence.
Personal income tax is collected from individuals or entities. When you file your tax return annually on or before the April filing deadline, you are reconciling the amount of taxes you have paid along with any additions, credits, and deductions. Personal income tax is generally paid throughout the year based on earnings and employment status. Your employer withholds taxes from each paycheck and sends it to the Department of Taxes. If you are self-employed, you must pay your own tax to the Department, usually quarterly.
