How can the definition of income

derive from a section of the IRC? The IRC was written AFTER the 16th Amendment was written into law, hm? I think you got it right the first time: right from the start, the government intended to tax all earnings, from all sources. The everyday usage of "income" was what Congress had in mind. The broader the definition, the better: they wanted all the loot they could get.
