... why do you think I started this post in the first place?
You think I don't know there are state and fed income taxes? LOL.
C'mon, dude. Please tell me you are smarter than that.
The federal Income Tax Act of 1894 was passed. And implemented. And challenged in court as unconstitutional. And declared unconstitutional by the US Supreme Court in Pollack vs. Farmers.
Are you trying to say that just because a law is passed that it is automatically constitutional? You're starting to sound like Nancy Pelosi. Or was that Frankenstein from California?
Anyway, we know that most states have an income tax. And we know (or at least, SHOULD know) that just because a law exists does not mean it is constitutional.
