Hello I'm Jeremy from TurboTax with some information about the various types of Federal taxes you may be responsible for. Most Americans are familiar with the Federal income tax but did you know that there are many other types of Federal taxes people pay each year? The income tax is by far the most important Federal tax since it provides the government with the majority of the revenue it collects each year and without it the country could not prosper. Employment taxes may be lower in amount but a majority of you pay these too. These taxes support Social Security, insurance and Medicare. If you are employed, this tax is withheld from your paycheck in addition to your income taxes. The Federal government collects 12.4 percent of your wages to fund those Social Security benefits you receive during retirement. However, you only pay half of that and your employer pays the other half. Less common are the estate and gift tax that a majority of tax payers will never pay. These taxes only affect those who leave behind a significant amount of money and property upon their death or who make gifts of substantial value during their lifetime. Unless you are in the top 2 percent of the wealthiest Americans, these taxes are not likely to be of concern to you. For more tax tips and guidance, visit TurboTax.com.
Hola, soy Jeremy de TurboTax con alguna información acerca de las varias clases de impuestos federales por los que eres responsable. La mayoría de los estadounidenses están familiarizados con el impuesto sobre la renta federal, pero ¿sabías que hay muchos otros tipos de impuestos federales que la gente paga cada año? El impuesto sobre la renta es, por lejos, el impuesto federal más importante, ya que proporciona al gobierno la mayoría de los ingresos que recolecta cada año y sin él el país no podría prosperar. Los impuestos de empleo pueden ser menores en cantidad, pero la mayoría de contribuyentes también los pagan. Estos impuestos financian la Seguridad Social y Medicare. Si eres empleado, este impuesto es retenido de tu cheque de pago, además de tu impuesto sobre la renta. El gobierno federal recolecta el 12,4 por ciento de tu salario para financiar las prestaciones de la Seguridad Social que recibes durante la jubilación. Sin embargo, tú sólo pagas la mitad de eso y tu empleador paga la otra mitad. Menos comunes son los impuestos sobre bienes y donaciones que la mayoría de los contribuyentes no van a pagar. Estos impuestos sólo afectarán a aquellos que dejan detrás una cantidad significativa de dinero y bienes a su muerte, o que hacen regalos de valor considerable durante su vida. A menos que estés en el dos por ciento de los estadounidenses más ricos, es probable que estos impuestos no sean de interés para ti. Por más consejos y guía de impuestos, visita TurboTax.com.
