February 3, 1913:  Sixteenth Amendment Adopted

The Sixteenth Amendment (Amendment XVI) to the United States Constitution allows the Congress to levy an income tax without apportioning it among the states or basing it on the United States Census. This amendment exempted income taxes from the constitutional requirements regarding direct taxes, after income taxes on rents, dividends, and interest were ruled to be direct taxes in the court case of Pollock v. Farmers’ Loan & Trust Co. (1895).

*Due to a flag pole malfunction and extreme global warming wind chills I’ll be featuring Yak Shaving replays until repairs can be made.  Thanks for your understanding.
