What's The Point Of The Sixteenth Amendment

By Brittany Antonacci June 29, 2020 0 comments

Hello Fellow Americans,

Today we’ll be continuing our in-depth series at a look into the constitution—primarily covering the Sixteenth Amendment. We’ll be giving a little background history as well as the purpose it holds today.

So, without further ado, let’s get started…

The Sixteenth Amendment states…

“The congress should have the power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apporintment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration.”

This was basically put into place to properly and fairly levy income taxes based on each individual American and provide efficient taxation.

This amendment basically protects…

 An Individual Tax

 

Taxing a set rate statewide wasn’t frowned upon until Pollock v. Farmers’ Loan & Trust Co. when the 2% standard for state taxes was deemed unconstitutional. This was because it was a direct tax portioned correctly for the state population but not each individual resident.

 

A Constitutional Income Tax Was In Order

 

After juggling with the Supreme Court for quite some time it was decided that a tax based on each individual income was in order. After receiving a two-thirds vote an income tax based solely on individual income and not on state population was in order. 

 

Overall, this amendment helped determine a fair and effective way to tax American citizens without the government holding any unfair advantage.  

 

So, let us know if you have any additional questions on this amendment and we’ll be happy to answer them in the comments.

 

See You Later Patriot!!!
