History of the US Income Tax
Compiled by Ellen Terrell

If, in the midst of sorting receipts and studying the latest changes in the US income tax laws, you suddenly wonder "What is the origin of this annual ritual in the weeks leading up to April 15th?" here are some places you can go for answers.
The origin of the income tax on individuals is generally cited as the passage of the 16th Amendment, passed by Congress on July 2, 1909, and ratified February 3, 1913; however, its history actually goes back even further. During the Civil War Congress passed the Revenue Act of 1861 which included a tax on personal incomes to help pay war expenses. The tax was repealed ten years later. However, in 1894 Congress enacted a flat rate Federal income tax, which was ruled unconstitutional the following year by the U.S. Supreme Court because it was a direct tax not apportioned according to the population of each state. The 16th amendment, ratified in 1913, removed this objection by allowing the Federal government to tax the income of individuals without regard to the population of each State. For additional information on taxation in the United States, see the section on taxes on the web site of the U.S. Department of the Treasury.

IRS Scandal Steven Miller: IRS 'Admission' Of Wrondoing Sounds Like a George Carlin Skit
Recently, it has been reported that the IRS targeted conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status. This Tuesday, the acting
IRS commissioner Steven Miller broke his silence on the scandal by writing a piece for USA Today stating, "Mistakes were made."
Miller's political jargon-laden writing is very hard to understand, and it almost seems like this was intentionally done as a sort of defense mechanism from criticism.
After all, it is hard to criticize what one does not understand.
Miller also reminded his readers that IRS employees are "civil servants" and that while they "could have done a better job" (an understatement if I have ever heard one),
"new procedures [will] ensure that the mistakes won't be repeated." Additionally, he reminded his audience that the mistakes were ultimately because of the increase of groups applying for 501(c)(4) tax exempt status, not because of "any political or partisan motivation." [ha ha ha - no way - huh uh]

NOT UNDERSTAND ...!?!
NOT UNDERSTAND ...!?!"
Very little for two reasons.
One, it is often difficult to decipher the unique twist and turns that happen in your head.
Secondly I have a life, and it is too precious to waste reading all your cut and paste garbage.
If you have some kind of point to make do so in your own words and I will make the attempt to figure out that point and discuss it with you.
IF I dispute any particular factual part of your contention THEN feel free to back it up with some cut and paste. Otherwise I will just pass it up.
I am here to have a discussion with people, not to argue everything every nutcase has posted on the web.
Please try to use normal writing instead of your usual disjointed style. It will make it easier for us to interpret and more likely that you will be taken seriously.
I say this not to be mean but because I want understand the points I know you wish to make.
