U.S. Taxation

U.S. Taxation

The system under which American persons are taxed. There are many types of taxation in the United States. At the federal level, personal income, corporate income and capital gains are all taxed on a progressive scale: corporations and persons making more are taxed at a higher rate. Most states also have income taxes and some have corporate taxes as well. Most states and localities also have sales taxes and some local governments have wage taxes on top of everything else. Numerous deductions and credits exist so U.S. taxation does not become crippling. Compared to the rest of the world, U.S. corporate taxes are rather high and income taxes are rather low.
