Understanding State and Local Taxes

SALT encompasses a wide range of taxes imposed by state and local governments. These taxes differ by state and municipality but can include:

State Income Taxes: 41 of the 50 U.S. states levy income taxes on residents. Each state has its own set of rules and rates for taxing personal and corporate income. Alaska, Florida, Nevada, New Hampshire, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, and Wyoming do not have income taxes.

Sales and Use Taxes: State and local governments levy taxes on the sale and use of goods and services, with rates and exemptions varying widely. MJ Ahmed CPA PLLC is here to help you determine if you owe any sales and use taxes or nexus taxes during any given year.

Property Taxes: Property owners are generally subject to taxation on real estate holdings. These rates can fluctuate based on local assessments. Furthermore, many tax authorities offer credits and deductions on property taxes to quaifying residents.

Franchise Taxes: Some states impose franchise taxes on businesses, which can be based on income, net worth, or other factors. The team at MJ Ahmed CPA PLLC will help you figure out if you are liable for franchise taxes.

Business License Taxes: Businesses often must obtain licenses to operate within a municipality, and associated fees or taxes may apply. If this is the case in your area, you may find yourself owing more taxes than you expected. We’re here to help you navigate the process.

Local Taxes: Counties and municipalities can introduce additional taxes and fees that must be understood and managed. These can vary depending on your financial situation, so make sure you schedule an appointment with one of our experts to discuss.
