NPR: A History of the Income Tax, From Abraham Lincoln to Donald Duck

NPR, From Abe Lincoln to Donald Duck: History of the Income Tax:

The story of how the U.S. wound up with the income tax is the story of two wars, a Supreme Court justice on his death bed, and Donald Duck. It's also the story of how the government overcame three obstacles.
