HISTORY OF TAXES IN U.S.A 2
United States history of taxes began in the 1970s where it was protesting against the
policies of British taxation, which resulted in the United States revolution. With colonial taxation,
the taxes were little within the colonial, imperial, and local levels all through the colonial period.
The problem that resulted in the United States revolution as if the parliament were authorized to
collect taxes on the United States citizens, whereas they had no representation in parliament. States
that were independently collected their taxes from tariffs referred to as imports, glass windows,
and whiskey. Some localities and states gathered their taxes from poll taxes brought about by
voters; they also collect from property taxes and even commercial buildings (Wallis, 2017).
Moreover, there were federal and state excise taxes. The federal and state inheritance taxes
were collected after 1900, whereas the state began gathering the sales taxes throughout the 1930s.
In America, the income taxes were imposed briefly throughout the 1890s and the Civil War. The
income tax was permanently legalized in the United States in 1913 under the 16
th
Amendment.
Tariffs have played a significant role in America's trade policy and its economic history
(Irwin, 2017). Throughout the 1970s, tariffs were extensive sources of state revenue until WW1
(World War 1), which was then outdone by the income taxes (Irwin, 2017). Due to federal and
state considering tariffs essential and efficient to gather through the main ports, they agreed that
the nation must have tariffs for returns purposes. Tariffs also played other roles in protecting the
local industry, which was considered a political dimension (Irwin, 2017). Since the 1790s to date,
tariffs generates large political stresses. Due to such political tensions in the 1900s, there was the
Nullification crisis and the WTO's establishment (World Trade Organization).
