City or Local Income Tax

    Local governments impose a local income tax in some states. In addition to federal and state income taxes, there are local taxes. People who stay or work in the area are generally subject to local income taxes. As an employer, you must be aware of local taxes in the areas where your employees work.

    A local tax is a levy levied by the state, county, or municipality to help public work. Property taxes, salary taxes, sales taxes, and licensing fees are examples of local taxes. They can differ significantly between jurisdictions.

    1. Most states have an income tax deducted from employee paychecks.
    2. Sales taxes on products and services are imposed by most states and some cities and towns.
    3. The property tax bill is the most significant municipal tax paid by most homeowners.

    Municipal governments frequently issue bonds to support capital projects in their communities. Municipal bond buyers are lending money to the government, which pledges to pay a specified rate of interest and return the principal at a later period.

    A municipal government may levy a new tax or increase existing local taxes to service the debt, that is, to meet interest and principal payback obligations on the bonds.
