Happy 97th birthday, income tax

Cake full of candles_strangecsomos The 16th Amendment, which authorizes the collection of an income tax, was ratified on this day in 1913.

Happy 97th!

And yes, as I noted a few days ago in The ever-growing tax code, the income tax is legal. Let it go, tax protesters. Let. It. Go.

So here's a blog toast to the Internal Revenue Code, the continual tweaking of which by Congress has made tax-related professions about the safest jobs in the United States!

Thanks to International Tax Blog (via Tax Update Blog) for the birthday reminder.
