Taxes

Every year, each person in the U.S. is responsible for submitting a federal income tax statement (this is called “filing a tax return”) to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) of the U.S. Treasury Department. Additionally, any person who earns income from Hawaii sources must file a state tax return with the State of Hawaii Department of Taxation. Please click on the links below for more information.
