IRS & Florida Department of Revenue Tax
Tax law is divided into both federal tax and state tax. Federal Income tax became law in 1913 when the Sixteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified. While some states do not have an income tax, all residents and citizens of the United States are subject to federal income tax. The more assets that an individual owns, unfortunately, the more complicated the tax law becomes. Our Florida Taxation Attorneys can explain in detail the complex state and federal tax laws that affect you and your case.

Lowering Your Income
The first way to reduce the taxes you owe is to lower your income. This is, of course, not the result most people want. Planning taxes should save you money in the long run, not force you to earn less!
Increasing Your Deductions
When you fill out your taxes, you need to list your deductions. This is the primary way that many tax law attorneys in Orlando and across the country help their clients avoid unnecessary taxes. For example, you may be able to deduct items like:
- How many dependents you have
- Healthcare expenses
- Items related to your employment
- Student loan interest
- Certain capital losses
Tax law in Florida, as well as federal tax law, is complex. It is highly unlikely that anyone who is not a full-time tax attorney will know all the possible deductions that could apply to their situation. By teaming up with the Orlando tax law attorneys at Bogin, Munns & Munns, you can help ensure that you take advantage of all the deductions you are legally owed.
Using Tax Credits
Deductions are used to tally up the amount of taxes you owe. Once you have that number, you can also take advantage of any available tax credits to reduce that amount. For example, tax credits may be allotted by the government to businesses that dispose of hazardous waste in a certain way, develop land in rural areas, employ a diverse workforce, or perform other tasks that are desired by the government. In this way, tax credits act as incentives.
There are two kinds of tax credits available to taxpayers: non-refundable credits and refundable credits.
Refundable Tax Credits
If a tax credit is “refundable,” that means you can receive a refund over and above the amount you owe. Let’s say you owe $500 in taxes, but the tax credit you can take advantage of is for $1,000. If it is a refundable tax credit, you would be able to use it to cover the $500 you owe and pocket the additional $500!
Non-Refundable Tax Credits
On the other hand, non-refundable tax credits only cover what you owe. In the above example, if the tax credit was non-refundable, it would cover the entire $500 you owe, but you would not receive any additional money.
At Bogin, Munns & Munns, we have experienced Orlando tax law lawyers on our team who know the tax credits available to you and can advise you on how to use them for your specific situation.
