History of Federal Taxation

Want to know more about a particular aspect of federal taxation? The Tax History Project is the place to look. It's a public service initiative of Tax Analysts, which they started in 1995. They've pulled together an Internet library of documents and other tax-related historical information. For example, there's an essay on the Boston Tea Party and a January 2001 Congressional Research Report (CRS) on the federal income tax. Whether you're fed-up with taxes, or just interested in learning the history of federal taxation, it's worth spending time browsing around the wealth of reading at the Tax History Project.
