Comment: Excise????

(See in situ)


Congress agrees with this: House Congressional Record 3-27-1943 page 2580
"The income tax is, therefore, not a tax on income as such. It is an excise tax with respect to certain activities and privileges which is measured by reference to the income which they produce. The income is not the subject of the tax: it is the basis for determining the amount of tax."

I guess now we've got to determine how my wages fall under excise taxes? Is it a certain activity? Or is it now a government privilege to work?
