State Taxing Authorities
Frequently, individuals and businesses find that their tax disputes are not limited to the IRS. Whether disputes involve overall tax liability, reporting responsibility, or collection alternatives, the state taxing authorities can be just as aggressive as the IRS.
In every state, the legislature establishes the types of tax and specific tax rates levied upon their citizens and businesses. States may impose a wide variety of taxes, including income taxes, alcohol and cigarette taxes, gasoline taxes, estate taxes and franchise taxes, to name just a few. The rates and types of taxes vary widely among the states. For example, while most states in the U.S. collect a state income tax in addition to the federal income tax a number of states still do not impose such a tax. The tax types and rates in each state are administered by a state tax department or division, which has been authorized to collect the taxes.
