income_taxBy Jerry Stewart - Vision Productions     It all started on March 1, 1913.  Our founding fathers deemed it unconstitutional. But today, almost 95 years later- it's still here.  What is it? 

 

In February of 1913, our U.S. Congress passed the 16th Amendment to our Constitution and it was born in America  -

 

What? 

 

Income Tax. 

 

It was deemed to be unconstitutional by our founding fathers, but that Amendment made it legal. 

 

Get this:

 

The first income tax return was only four pages long in total, and that included the instructions; 

 

The first income taxes ranged from 1% to 5%; 

 

When the Amendment was passed, one nervous U.S. Senator warned that if the income tax system wasn't monitored carefully, the income tax rates could go as high as 10%. 

 

If he had only known!
