The income tax as it is being applied today is unconstitutional. The Constitution allows taxes on income. Not on wages. Per the Constitution, a direct tax, ie one paid directly to the government, must be uniform. The taxes collected by the IRS are not. Per the Constitution, an indirect tax must be apportioned to each state according to the population. The taxes collected by the IRS are not. The federal courts have taken this and declared that the current income tax is simultaneously direct, indirect, and neither. Not rocket science but that kind of makes it unconstitutional. Bazinga.
