Taxes are one of life’s few constants. Every year, the vast majority of Americans are required to file an income tax return with the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”). Even though “tax season” has become an integral part of American life, the process involved can still be confusing and even overwhelming for many Americans. The complex nature of federal tax law is, in part, to blame for the confusion. To give you a better idea of how tax law works, your state tax returns are equally important and typically need to be filed around the same time as your federal taxes. While many state tax codes mirror the federal code, there are often key differences between each state, which are important to know before you start the tax process.
