Jump to: navigation, search
Local taxes are taxes that are collected by city or county governments. Local taxes general consist of sales, excise (on special items such as alcohol or tobacco) and property taxes.[1] Unlike the federal income tax, most local taxes are applied to tax-payers at the same rate, regardless of annual income. For this reason, some refer to local taxes as regressive taxes.[2]
