i wonder why americans have tax season in spring when it would seem appropriate for autumn [harvest] .

Gary Gach

..........................................

American tax season being in spring is based on when the 16th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which authorizes the U.S. federal income tax as we know it today, was ratified.

The 16th Amendment was ratified in February, 1913, and so Congress decided that the first income tax would be collected as of March 1, 1914. The date moved was moved to March 15 in 1918, for reasons not readily available on the internet. The date of April 15 was settled on by Congress in 1955, apparently to allow the Internal Revenue Service more time to do its job, and so it remains to this day.

MOST CITIZENS ARE NOT REQUIRED TO FILE AN INCOME TAX RETURN

THE 16TH ("INCOME TAX") AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION IS A FRAUD

IF YOU FILE, YOU WAIVE YOUR 5th AMENDMENT RIGHTS

These are the major points expressed in a Remonstrance, that was hand delivered to leaders of the three branches of the federal government on April 13, 2000, by a group of citizen-delegates representing all 50 states. These grievances concern alleged illegal operations of the federal income tax system and the IRS.

In The Netherlands, it's income tax return time, too. The harvest comes just before summer, when the government has decided how much, if any, we get back. Last month, something went wrong with the central computer, so we had to post ours digitally all over again.
