That being said, the United States taxation system is a progressive model, which entails different tax rates based off the income tax brackets. The laws themselves are universal in regards to a mandatory payment of taxes for income earned, however, the rate at which individuals pay tax will fluctuate based on how income they obtain. The progressive model of taxation in regards to the income tax places a greater responsibility on higher-income earners in the United States. Those individuals who make more money will be proportionately taxed at higher rates. As a result of this taxation method, the laws associated with income tax are universal; however, the percentages of the levy will vary in proportion to the individual's monthly salary.
