A taxonomy is a hierarchal facet. This means that your subcategories will be treated as a child to the parent category instead of an individual facet.
Here is what an example category taxonomy look like:
-States ---California ------Los Angeles ---New York ------New York
Here is that same category not treating it as a taxonomy:
-States -California -Los Angeles -New York -New York
As you can see, treating it as a taxonomy is much better.
