Is the Federal Government Allowed to Tax You?



Well, the people have the all the power, of course, but we set up a federal government and said it could have the power to collect taxes to carry out its limited duties. Where did we give it this authority? In the Constitution. You remember... "We the people...," yada, yada, yada? So, who can they tax? Well, let's see what it says -- says here:

"Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers...." -- U.S. Constitution, Article I, Section 2, Paragraph 3:

So, it can tax the states, but it has to be in proportion to the number of people in that state. Makes sense... I mean it's only fair that small states get taxed less. What else does it say about how it is to do this taxing?
