"The only things certain are death and taxes" - Benjamin Franklin Yet few know America's interesting history of Income Tax, such as:

*1787 - U.S. Constitution prohibited a "direct" Federal tax

*1873 - Civil War ended, emergency over, Income Tax Repealed
*1895 - Supreme Court made Income Tax unconstitutional
*1913 - *Woodrow Wilson thought tariffs on imports caused wars, so he worked to replace them with an Income Tax. Income Tax was originally only a 1% tax on the top 1% richest people in America.
*1943 - Paycheck Withholding began as an emergency effort to get funds to finance WWII.
