Tax

Overview

Tax law is the body of law that establishes how taxes are imposed and regulated by the government. A tax is defined as a tariff on economic transactions by individuals and corporations. Taxes are used to produce government revenue and support government programs and initiatives. Taxes are imposed by both the federal government and individual state governments. Tax laws are codified by the federal government in the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, which appears as Title 26 of the United States Code. Individual states have codified their tax systems within state statutes. While a variety of taxes exist, the most significant taxes within tax law include the income tax, social security tax, estate and gift taxes, property tax and sales and use taxes.
