TPC Hosts Program Today on 100 Years of the Federal Income Tax

Tax Policy Center LogoThe Tax Policy Center hosts a lunch time program today (12:00-1:30 p.m. EST) on Happy Anniversary? 100 Years of the Federal Income Tax (webcast here):

One hundred years ago this month, the Sixteenth Amendment to the Constitution was ratified, giving Congress the “power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration.” And for 100 years, the income tax has been both soap box and whipping post for innumerable debates over the role and resources of government, the relationship of the electorate to the elected, and fairness, favor, and confusion in the tax code.
