See the 1909 Corporate Tax Act as that is where you find the

definition of "income" that was considered by the Supreme Court to be the constructive definition at the time the 16th was ratified.

I don't have the case cite handy, but I'm sure you could easily find it.

"Income" is thus not wages or salaries in general, and not "everything that comes in."

Neither can Congress define "income" in any law since the word appears in the 16th. The only definition possible is the one in the minds of the People at the time they adopted the 16th, and THAT definition has been determined to be the one in the 1909 act.
