Today in NOT the 100th anniversary of the federal income tax. The federal income tax was enacted on October 3, 1913. See www.grandodpartisan.com and Back to Basics for the Republican Party for more information.

The first sentence of the article clearly states that the 16th amendment was ratified February 3,1913. I did not claim that it was enacted that day. And if you follow the link to the ATR website they called it the 100th anniversary, because it was symbolically the 3rd of February.

The 16th Amendment merely authorized Congress to enact a federal income tax, which it did ion October 3, 1913.

Again, okay...what is your point? Heather got the date wrong. So, should we just wait until the date you tell us is the correct date to complain?

Okay, I will wait until the correct date.

Today is the 100th birthday of the income tax. On February 3, 1913 the 16th amendment was ratified, which enabled the establishment of the federal income tax. This is ever in our mind as tax season is now upon us.

Look at this graphic that Americans for Tax Reform released in honor of the 100th anniversary:
