Taxing America Quiz

I read through a brief summary of the History of the Income Tax in the United States and thought that I would administer a simple quiz on US Taxes:
  1. What war caused the US to first enact taxes at a federal level?

    • War of 1812
    • Civil War
    • World War I

  2. When was the first income tax levied against US workers?

    • 1812
    • 1862
    • 1913

  3. When was a US withholding tax on wages first levied?

    • 1862
    • 1913
    • 1943
Check out your answers here and let me know how you did.
