How does the US Tax system work?
I’m Scottish and always see on American TV shows and have heard American people talking about “doing their taxes”. Here in the UK, our income tax is predetermined in accordance with our income and is taken from our monthly salary before it gets to us, unless you’re self employed then you have to do your own taxes.
Does everyone in the U.S. have to do their own taxes regardless of your employment status? And how the hell do you keep track of it all!? What taxes do you need to file? Are there different types of tax you need to take it upon yourself to pay?
