Iowa Tax Laws
Paying taxes is the unavoidable duty of those living and working in a state with shared resources such as highways and schools, although there is quite a bit of debate over who actually contributes their fair share. Taxes also pay for roads, fire departments, public parks, emergency response teams, services for the poor, and other assets that Iowa residents (and visitors) depend on each day. Consumer taxes include excise taxes on cigarettes, liquor, gasoline, and other goods considered either unhealthy (tobacco, for instance) or in limited supply (such as gasoline).
