Happy Anniversary? 100 Years of the Federal Income Tax

Noon–1:30 p.m. ET
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.”
