I guess I was thinking of the War Revenue Act(s), rather than the Sixteenth Amendment. After looking about, it turns out that an income tax was imposed during the Civil War (1867 to 1872), and then repealed. Subsequent attempts to reimpose one were rebuffed by the Supreme Court, as you indicated, until ratification in 1913 of the 16th Amendment.

Immediately after the 16th Amendment passed, Congress imposed an income tax - but it affected less than 1% of the population. It was the War Revenue Act that brought the graduated income tax that we have come to know and love. In other words, it was a tax imposed to pay for the war, and was simply built upon and never repealed... so I think the original comment still stands. :-)

Regards,
Dean
